There are no safety concerns with this, but mixed evidence on if it works in MS. Some do report a benefit or a feeling better with it.

I do beleive it makes you feel better but heard it can damage your lungs eventually
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 15 days ago.

I don't think there is consistent evidence about long term damage so I wouldn't be worried by that.
