TREATMENT OPTIONS

Learn about treatment options for individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS).

There are different types of MS treatments

When considering MS treatment options, it is important to educate yourself, be your own advocate, and work with your physician, healthcare provider, and healthcare team.

Although there is no cure for multiple sclerosis (MS), there are treatments available that may help. Disease modifying therapies (DMTs) may help reduce the number of relapses and slow the progression of physical disability.

It's important to do your research when choosing an MS treatment. Look into how different treatments work, their side effects, and how each one is given. Being your own advocate can help you have better conversations with your healthcare provider. 

Common types of MS treatments include:
  • Pills (also known as oral medications). They can come in a tablet or capsule form
  • Infusions (given intravenously, usually through a needle in the arm)
  • Injections (typically given with a needle or an autoinjector that injects the medication under your skin or into your muscle tissue)
