Thanks for using health care magic.
MND is a motor neuron disease and unfortunately there is not much medical treatment available. You information is right as riluzole is the only standardized treatment available for MND and that too only prolongs the life of the person. The reports say that riluzole can prolong ones life by 4-6 months or so. Moreover it can also delay the use of respiratory aids.
Baclofen is another drug which is emerging for MND but not very effective and popular.
The situation is the same world over.
