Veterans discuss their experiences with MS DMTs and the VA MS experts give their feedback
Nine patients with MS share the experiences with DMT—both the successes and the challenges. While some patients are able to adapt quickly to daily injections, others have a more difficult time incorporating the treatment into their daily lives. A couple patients also share thoughts related to the convenience of monthly injections and how different VA facilities have different infusion processes.
