Special Report #1: Ampyra Cost & Process for getting the drug
Hi All, I learned so much about Ampyra and can't wait to share it all with you. The most important and timely information I thought you would appreciate is the cost of Ampyra and the process by which you can obtain the drug. If you are on the fence about trying it, stay tuned, I have lots of answers to questions you may have. If you have already decided it's something you want to try, I'll tell you how.
The cost of the drug is $1,056 for 60 pills, a 1 month supply. This cost incorporates many factors, the cost of development, trials and a 20 year journey to get it to market; the perceived value of what it offers to the ms community; and a portion of the design and manufacture of future drugs/trials for ms patients. All of these correlate to what Acorda feels is a fair cost to consumers.
That being said, Acorda is committed to making Ampyra available to every patient that wants to take it.
