MS Trust are looking for peoples views on the early treatment debate

Link is on the MS Trust’s Facebook and Twitter page. They are running an article re the debate to wait and see or treat early (RRMS) and are looking for peoples comments.

I’m in the treat early camp, I’ve never been sure what gain comes from waiting when dealing with a progressive disease personally.


one option is to stand tall and confront what might ail you.

the other is to plug your fingers in your ears and hope it goes away / doesn’t come back.

the choice is no real choice at all, especially when some DMDs offer few if any side effects or fail to affect current, normal life behaviours.

Thanks for that. I totally agree with aggressive treatment (as does my neuro) and I’ll say so. Why wouldn’t you want to start treatment?
