Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis
A number of issues are to be considered by the patient when treating multiple sclerosis such as reducing the number of attacks, speedy recovery, slowing down the progression of the disease etc. It is best if treatment is started at the onset of the disease. Disease modifying drugs can be taken once relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis is established. Once the patient and the physician have agreed on the issues that need to be attended to first, treatment can begin. Constant monitoring is required to keep side effects in check. Patients can also look for alternative solutions if they feel the side effects of conventional medicine are too many to bear. Support groups, counseling and family members can also help the person suffering from multiple sclerosis to cope with the changes that are going to happen in his/her life.
