Though we don’t have a cure for MS, we do have an increasing number of disease modifying drugs. These have been shown to reduce the number of relapses people with MS have. There’s also increasing evidence that starting treatment soon after diagnosis improves your chances of staying healthy in the long term. Some are pills, some are injected and some come as infusions. They all come with their own risks and benefits. Try the MS Trust’s MS Decisions – an online tool and printed book that can help you compare drugs and see what works for you.
