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