Staying Well With Multiple Sclerosis (MS) (cont.)


Patient Comments

Medications for multiple sclerosis include the following:

  • Corticosteroids: These affect immunologic actions, such as inflammation (swelling) and immune responses associated with multiple sclerosis may help expedite the recovery (but not necessarily reduce the severity) from multiple sclerosis attacks.
  • Immune-modulating drugs: These decrease the ability of the immune cells to cause inflammation.
  • Immunosuppressants: These are stronger medications that also interfere with the function of the immune system and can reduce inflammation.
