Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and invasive disorder of the central nervous system (CNS). As you know, it is formed by the brain and spinal cord, as well as by the optic nerves. The disease affects myelin, which in a normal state surrounds and protects the nerves. MS can cause damage to nerve endings.
Despite the fact that there is no cure for the disease, a large number of available medicines can reduce its severity and slow progression, including in old age.
Treatment of multiple sclerosis is a long process. The patient needs to be patient because taking medication is necessary not only when the exacerbation starts, but also during periods of well-being. This is required to slow the course of the disease and prevent the emergence of new areas of sclerosis.
To treat exacerbations, corticosteroids are used. To remove the attack, use solu-medrol or methylprednisolone intravenously. Such treatment is called pulse therapy. It allows to achieve restoration of functions and to shorten the duration of exacerbation.
