Definition of Insanity: MS Style

My wife was diagnosed in 1995. Her main complaint has always been pain; mostly in the legs, but the pain does travel in many different areas of her body.

She use to take 3 to 5 prescribed meds(pills)a day for pain; plus an assortment of vitamins. That came out to be 275-300 pills total a month. Almost 20 years later, she is now taking 570 prescribed meds monthly, an injection 3x a week. Her doctor just prescribed a Rx med to take along with the 6 Tylenol she is taking a day! If you add the vitamins, it is almost 700 pills a month.

Is this type of MS treatment common with your readers? Or am I doing my part in keeping some pharmaceutical companies in the black?
