Spread the Word!
Thanks to significant advances in research, the FDA has approved several treatments that may alter the underlying disease course of multiple sclerosis and early treatment is critically important. People with MS should consult their doctors about using one of these FDA-approved medications and other effective treatments for the symptoms of MS. If you or someone you know has MS, contact the National MS Society - Northwestern Ohio Chapter for more information at 1-800-FIGHT MS.
