Ask a Neurologist and Get an Answer ASAP
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I am sorry to hear about your husband's condition.
Does he have any symptoms from MS currently?
I am sorry --I was away on a call.
It seems that he is still in MS flare.
Hence, he will need steroid therapy.
it is better to consider injection therapy with methylprednisolone 1000 mg daily for 5 days without taper.
This is well tolerated and helps with quick remission.
After that, alternative disease modifying agent like dimethyl fumarate (oral therapy) can be tried to control his disease activity.
Yes 5 days is the standard treatment with the above dose recommendation.
He should continue them as they do help long term.
I hope he gets well soon,
