The use of oral medications (pills) is the latest development in MS treatment, providing an alternative to infusions and injections.
Some people prefer pills so they can avoid contact with needles, either from receiving an infusion or having to inject themselves. It is just as important to weigh effectiveness of a treatment against its side effects and potential safety issues. Please speak with your healthcare provider if you have any additional questions.
Use our Treatment Selection Guide to help you organize information about the therapies you're considering. Be sure to discuss your treatment options with your doctor to see if taking pills for MS is right for you.
