This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
While it's a choice each and every MS patient has to make about medications, the DMDs have been greatly over rated on their effect on the patients who use them. Their efficacy is low, the side effects high and the cost far too much for drugs that have been around for a long time.
I agree with you Harry. I don't discredit MSers for wanting to take these medicines if it is their choice but no doctor has the right to guilt/coerce a patient into using one of the DMD's if the patient does not want to use one.
