MS Medication

Please consult with your neurologist, MS nurse or GP if you feel your medication is not working as well as you had hoped. I am not a medical professional nor do I intend to provide any medical advice to anyone. Please see your family doctor or neurologist if you have any health care concerns. My intention is to provide accurate information from the perspective of an informed patient.

The following mediation listed has only been found effect for people suffering from Relapsing/Remitting MS, and for some people with Secondary Progressive MS. There is currently no equivalent medication available for the progressive form of MS.

For a complete list of available medication, go to: http://www.mstrust.org.uk/atoz/drugs.jsp

Avonex (once a week injections)

Betaferon (every other day injection)

Copaxone (daily injections)

Rebif (to inject 3 times per week)

Tysabri (once a month infusion)

Gilenya, the first oral treatment for MS

Ampyra, the first and only medication shown to improve walking in people with MS

Lemtrada is showing promise in certain autoimmune illnesses such as MS

Low Dose Naltrexone

Tecfidera has shown to have a significant effect on relapse rate and time to progression in phase III clinical trials

      Ah that’s great to hear! It’s not often you hear people with secondary progressive say they are helped with conventional medication. Glad to hear it so! :)

      I will add your medication to the following list so as I intend to create one for secondary MS also.

Penny for your thoughts...
