User Profile
My cousin has been suffering of Multiple Sclerosis for last ten years. She was under treatment of various neuro physicians but could not recover. Now a doctor suggested us of vitamin treatment that include vitamins of an USA Medicine Company GNC and some injections and asked to leave other medicines These treatment is very costly and yet very little improvement.
Do these vitamin therapy alternate to medicine she is using for last ten years ?.

Welcome to ehealthforum

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune condition in which the nerves of the nervous system degenerate gradually.First of all there is no known cure for MS and the treatment only prevents disability and new attacks.The supplements which you have been taking are not medically approved and beneficial.
Kindly continue with the medications suggested by your treating doctor.The prognosis of the disease depends on the disease stage.

Take Care!
