Riluzole (Rilutek) is a drug used to improve respiratory function in people with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). It delays the onset of ventilator dependence and extends life expectancy by an average of three months, though the high cost of the medication ($10 per tablet) and it's modest benefit tend to prevent its use in a lot of patients. Tizanidine (Zanaflex) is a andrenergic muscle relaxant used to treat the spasms, cramping and tightness of muscles caused by ALS. Roxanol is a concentrated oral solution of morphine used to treat the muscle pain caused by ALS. The oral solution is prescribed instead of oral tablets because people in the intermediate stages of ALS often have difficulty swallowing solids, the final stages of the disease often prevent any swallowing at all, so intramuscular and intravenous drug formulations are used at that time.

A respirator is a device designed to protect the wearer from inhaling particulate matter, including airborne microorganisms, fumes, vapors and gases. The correct term for the machine someone with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or any condition that affects a person's ability to breathe normally, is a ventilator. A medical ventilator is a machine designed to move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to provide oxygen for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently. Calling a ventilator a respirator is a common television and movie mistake. See more
