About ms. I've heard that that patients using pill treatment didn't have good results and got worse in compare with injection treatment. Your opinion.

In some cases: The most robust benefit of currently available treatment appears to be in the earlier phases of relapsing forms of ms. As times goes on, and with the development of progressive disability, there is a less obvious physical or cognitive benefit from such agents. While inflammation never ceases, loss of pathways in the central nervous system drives progressive loss of function. ...Read more
