Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Article,"Treatment of progressive disease or prevention of relapses may involve use of interferon, cyclosporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, or other immunomodulatory agents. Use of these medications is beyond the usual scope of practice of emergency physicians, and they are not discussed further in this section."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Comprehensive Article, Family Caregiver Alliance:"Clinical research suggests that it is beneficial to begin treatment for MS as early as possible, and that medications can have the most impact if they are taken as soon as the disease is diagnosed. The lack of active inflammation in the brain is seen as an indicator of successful treatment."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), The most frequently prescribed treatments for MS,"Since there is presently no known way to prevent or cure multiple sclerosis (MS), the primary focus of everyday care is aimed at symptom management and efforts to stabilize progression of the disease. The most frequently prescribed treatments for MS are aimed at modifying the immune system response and reducing inflammatory effects."

Drugs Commonly Used In Multiple Sclerosis,"Every drug available in medicine today carries a risk of side effects, including over the counter remedies. Some drugs are much better tolerated than others, producing very few side effects in only a very small number of people. Other, more powerful drugs, particularly those on the cutting edge of medicine, may carry the possibility of significant side effects."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Patient Ratings of MS Medications,"Neurontin (Gabapentin) is a second-generation anticonvulsant medication (U.S. FDA 1993), approved for the treatment of epileptic seizures. Anticonvulsants are believed to work in part by by enhancing the actions of a natural brain chemical, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). GABA is a neurotransmitter, a chemical that carries messages between brain nerve cells. GABA inhibits the transmission of nerve signals, thereby reducing nervous excitation."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Video and Transcripts, RXList:"The FDA's approval of a drug called Rebif is important as it brings another medical option to the treatment of MS.
