    Nuedexta

    My husband had read recently that Nuedextra has been now been licensed in Europe,which would fit in with the time scales predicted in previous threads posted earlier this year.

    Consequently we were wondering if that means it will now be available on prescription here in the UK. While Colin doesnt have the symptoms of extreme emotional liability he does grin like a cheshire cat at any of my attempts at humour!!! Our main interest is the possible improvement in speech and swallow which might....come from taking the drug.

    Has anyone heard anything??

    Hi all,

    Nuedexta is approved (licensed) in the EU and the UK, but it is not yet ‘launched’ like it is in the US. It’s available only to registered users and is timetabled for NICE approval (who decide whether it is available on the NHS).

    It may be available soon but it is worth people with MND discussing this with their neurologist.

    Best wishes,

    Andrew
