Understanding Multiple Sclerosis Medications (cont.)

Medical Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis

Presently, no cure exists for multiple sclerosis. However, several medications are now available to decrease the number of attacks (periods of relapse) of multiple sclerosis or delay the progression of physical disability. Medications and other therapies may also be prescribed to treat general symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis, such as depression, muscle spasms, fatigue, bladder problems, tremors (shakiness), poor coordination, and sexual dysfunction.
