2 doctors agree

In brief: Rilutek (riluzole) and support

The only medication that has been fda approved for motor neuron disease is rilutek- it is expensive, but does show a clearly prolonged lifespan.
One critical aspect to care of patients with motor neuron disease is enrollment in a multidisciplinary clinic, where the many needs (dietary, pulmonary, speech, mobility, etc.) of these patients can be addressed in a comprehensive manner.
