There is no cure for multiple sclerosis. Treatment typically focuses on speeding recovery from attacks, slowing the progression of the disease and managing symptoms. Relapsing-remitting MS has certain medications which can lower the relapse rate and also formation of new lesions in early disease course. But no therapies have shown benefit for slowing the progression of primary-progressive MS. Certain disease-modifying drugs have been shown to reduce exacerbations and slow the progression of MS. Of which (Interferon drugs and Copaxone) are considered to be very safe. As with any medical treatment, medications used in the management of MS may have several adverse effects, and many possible therapies are still under research.
