  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Slight
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 960 mg Monthly
Advice & Tips: New neurologist said this is no longer recommended as a one day once a month treatment. Side effects outnumber the benefits. I would be out of commission for the entire week when taking this treatment. The main benefit I received from doing this is a day of lots of energy while on the steroid but 4-5 days of feeling like crap coming off of it. However, it did help with my cognition for about 2 weeks especially when having conversations. I'm actually glad I won't be doing it anymore. The one full day of migraine really wasn't worth it when sometimes I was already feeling good plus having to plan my life around being unavailable for one week out of every month. Real pain in the....well you know.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 1 g Daily
Advice & Tips: Besides the times of my exacerbations I have been getting a "theraputc" dose before I go on extended vacations. In 2010 I traveled to London and Ireland and this June I went to Rome, Venice and back to Ireland where I end up doing a lot of walking. The positive side effect of the emergy boost and reduction in inflamation helps with long days.
Side effects: Increased energy
