When to consider changing MS DMT medications?
Dr. Dennis Bourdette describes key factors to consider before switching an MS patient from one DMT to another. Unfortunately, there is no recipe book that clearly spells out when a patient’s DMT should be changed. The main questions to ask are: 1) Is the current DMT causing side effects that severely affect the patient’s quality of life? and 2) Is it adequately controlling their MS? If the patient experiences severe relapse or disability, or side effects that prove intolerable, it may be time to consider switching DMTs.
