Treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) includes 3 categories: prevention of relapses and disease progression; treatment of individual relapses; and treatment of symptoms and complications. This chapter focuses mainly on prevention of relapses and progression by altering the natural course of MS. The medications used are known as disease-modifying drugs (DMDs). The treatment of individual relapses and symptomatic treatment is also briefly covered.
