Multiple Sclerosis Medications

Treatments for MS focus on controlling the immune system and managing symptoms. The current goals for MS care are to reduce the frequency of relapses and to slow the progression of the disease by using a drug therapy approach called disease modifying treatments (DMTs). In addition to the use of a DMT, it is important for people to work with their health care providers to find the best approach to address MS symptoms like extreme fatigue, bladder problems and muscle spasms. MS symptoms can be managed with conventional medication, complementary and alternative medicine, physical therapy, mobility devices, and other self-care approaches.
