If you google "John McDougall" and go to his web site there is a video there that explains why you shouldn't take the medications. Watch his video and it will explain about "the Multiple Sclerosis Risk Sharing Scheme" which was a study done in England which showed people taking the drugs did worse than those who didn't take them. Diet is the key to fighting this disease. Dr. Swank has a diet which he has studied for over 50 years which has shown good results in fighting MS. Google his name and he has a web site on line. Check out his diet.
