Disease modifying drugs (DMDs) are a group of treatments for people with relapsing multiple sclerosis.
This guide contains a fold-out chart of the disease modifying drugs (DMDs) approved for use by the NHS in the UK. It can be used to compare information on each of these key topics:
- What kind of MS is it for?
- How do I take it?
- How is it monitored?
- Effectiveness for relapses
- Will it increase my risk of infections?
- What vaccines can I take?
- Can this be taken during pregnancy?
- Can this be taken while breastfeeding?
- Common or mild side effects
- Rare or serious side effects
Further information on each of the DMDs can be found in our companion book, Disease modifying drugs: a guide to treatments for relapsing MS.
Our online resource, MS Decisions, provides an interactive decision aid to help you compare DMDs on your desktop or smartphone.
