I’m new to site! Very confused. Dr suggested stopping DMT, said my MS mild but I have deficits on left side which are perm. Not sure stopping DMT right thing to do. Confused right now. Anyone out there stopped DMTs?

    1. I am so glad I am no longer on DMT. I had awful side effects on 2 of them. That was 15 years ago.
