Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 1
How long do I have to be treated for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis?
Treatment for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) should be continued throughout the patient’s lifetime. Riluzole may extend the life of patients with ALS and delay progression of symptoms. Other treatment such as physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy can help improve quality of life.
