HI Melsville, in addition to community feedback you may get, I thought you would appreciate this information on oral medications -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/special-report-2014-oral-treatments-for-ms/. Some of our community members have found oral medications to be a good fit for them. But, as you well know, everyone responds differently to different treatments. What works for one person may not work for another. Just one of the frustrating aspects of living with a chronic condition! Here is some more information on oral meds and how useful our community members found them to be -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/special-report-2014-oral-treatments-for-ms/effectiveness-and-side-effects-of-oral-treatments/. I hope this information helps! Good luck with your medications! I know changing meds can be a daunting and scary thing. You are not alone! Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.
