The goal of treatment is to control symptoms and help you maintain your normal activities. Copaxone or glatiramer acetate
is approved for treating MS. Steroids may also be used to decrease the severity of attacks. Support groups are invaluable. The best outlook are females, people who were young (less than 30 years) when the disease started, people with infrequent attacks, with a relapsing-remitting pattern and who have limited disease on imaging studies.
