RRMS: What You Need to Know About Switching Medications

Relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) is the most common form of multiple sclerosis (MS). You may have periods where no symptoms occur (remittance), followed by bouts of worsening symptoms (relapse). Sometimes the symptoms become permanent during remittance.
As inflammation chronically affects the central nervous system, symptoms and overall disease progression can be difficult to predict. With RRMS, the symptoms may worsen over time. Subsequently, your treatment plan may require modification.
Based on your symptoms, you may be thinking about switching your medications. While switching RRMS medications might be helpful, this isn’t necessarily a smooth transition. Before you stop your current treatment plan and start up another one, be sure to discuss safety considerations and the possibility of worsening symptoms with your doctor. You will also need to understand all dosing information.
