Numerous: The treatments are numerous! they all have side effects to consider, but at the end of the day, the goal is to slow down the disease process. Some are daily injections, every other day injections, once per week injections, etc. About three years ago, the fda approved the first "pill", now there are three, probably more to come. A neurologist should have all informational material in office.

We have learned: That MS is a "bad disease", and pts do best with the most potent medications in many cases. Consider Gilenya or Tysabri, (natalizumab) but if you may wish children, Copaxone far safer. See a neurologist who focuses in area of MS.
