Multiple sclerosis can be a severely disabling disease. Recently introduced immunomodulatory drugs (interferon beta or glatiramer acetate) should be considered for the treatment of patients in the earlier stages of the disease, if they have a relapsing-remitting course. These therapies have replaced older immunosuppressants such as methotrexate, at this stage of the disease.

I also think my father was prescribed this for Psoriasis.
