Treatment Options

Finding the right option for you

You may be experiencing some MS symptoms that you can feel on a daily basis. But whether you are or not, underlying MS activity could be damaging your central nervous system. So even if you're feeling fine, your MS may be worsening, and you might experience new symptoms later on.

Many studies have shown that permanent nerve damage can happen during relapses. These relapses may contribute to physical disability progression. To help slow this progression, talk with your healthcare provider about starting treatment with an FDA-approved medication as soon as you are diagnosed.

There are different types of treatments

Do your research. Look at the ways that different treatment options work. Find out about their clinical studies, side effects, and effectiveness. Bring up specific concerns about safety and side effects with your healthcare provider. Learning all you can empowers you to make a confident decision with your healthcare provider.

Some different treatment options include:

  • Injections
  • Infusions
  • Oral pills
