WHAT PHARMACISTS ARE TOLD ABOUT MS

A friend who is a pharmacist just sent me the current addition of a newsletter mailed to those of his profession. It was all about multiple sclerosis and the drugs to treat it.

Okay, fine, good that they took an interest in educating their...wait, what was that? Yep, in black and white it described what MS is and added that it will become secondary progressive if drug treatment is not started. Wow.

And, so, this is what students of medicine are probably taught. I'd bet on it, so pervasive is the misinformation about MS and the many treatments people with MS choose.

I was on a disease modifying drug, Copaxone, for 7 years until I moved to the secondary progressive stage. "Think how much sooner you would have been trapped in a wheel chair without the drug!"

Well played, because THAT is a question we will never know.
