Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

MS treatments don't cure MS, but they can be effective at helping you reduce the frequency of relapses. Some have been proven to help slow the progression of physical disability, while others are designed to alleviate certain symptoms.

Whichever multiple sclerosis treatment you choose, starting as soon as possible — and staying on a therapy — is important to help manage your MS.

That's why you should work with your healthcare team early to define your treatment goals. Once you have a clear idea of what you can realistically expect from your therapy, you and your healthcare team can create the treatment plan that's right for you.

When evaluating MS treatment options, there are a number of choices. They all have different benefits, side effects, dosing schedules, and routes of administration. So it's important to choose one that works with your lifestyle and schedule — to help you stay on a multiple sclerosis therapy exactly as prescribed.
