I was diagnosed about 5.5 years ago, and I have tried all but one of the CRAB drugs. Both changes were made due to adverse reactions to the medications. However, when discussing the results of routine MRIs with me, my neuro tends to suggest combining or changing treatments if he or the radiologist determines there has been new activity (usually inactive) since my last MRI (my neuro rarely agrees with what the radiologist reports, but thats another post for another time). He often mentions new things for me to try at my regular office visits (eg: vitamin D supplements, some antibiotic that I think treats acne but he says is supposed to be good for MS), but since he does not explain the research that supports them, I usually end up doing my own research before Ill do anything. Im confused because MS treatments so far only SLOW the progression of the disease and LESSEN the effects of exacerbations. Given that this is the case, is it a wise call to switch meds when there is silent activity since no med is proven to stop attacks? I feel like I would be out of options by now if I switched every time my neuro suggested I change what I am using.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
