Multiple Sclerosis - Do the cognitive issues get better?

Responses (1)

Marvell 9 Oct 2009

Unfortunately, if someone has cognitive issues with multiple sclerosis it won't get any better.

During the last few years, there have been numerous studies looking at ways to stabilize or improve cognitive dysfunction. Some of these studies looked at whether the MS disease-modifying drugs could slow the progression of changes in cognition. Results were mixed, with interferon beta-1a showing the most potential.

Studies have also looked at other treatments that may temporarily improve cognitive functioning. Medications used for Alzheimer's patients, including Aricept, may have a role here, but further research is needed.
