Hello,

For spinal muscular atrophy, any drugs cannot bring momentary energy that can lift you up. Doing meth is also not doing any good to you apart from some mental support.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon
