Muscle spasms are a common symptom of multiple sclerosis, and baclofen is one of the better treatments for that issue. Baclofen helps your body to normalize electrical signals between your brain and the nerves, helping them to function normally while preventing spasticity. Side effects of Baclofen may include drowsiness, headaches, muscle weakness, dizziness or nausea, but most MS patients take this medication with few issues. Patients also have options with how to take baclofen. The easier option is taking the medication in pill form. However, patients can also opt for a spinal injection called an intrathecal baclofen. The injection is ...

I've been using Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) for many years. Without a doubt, this medication has successfully slowed the progression of my multiple sclerosis, and more time passes between MS symptom relapses. Overall, my experience with taking cyclophosphamide has been positive. That said, talk to your doctor about cyclophosphamide's side effects if you're ever prescribed this drug. I've experienced significant nausea and vomiting at times, and also the medication caused my hair to thin. I've also suffered with frequent bouts of constipation which my doctor says could be related to this drug. This medication is helpful in reducing MS symptoms, but just ...

My father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis years ago, and eventually he started having trouble with walking. His doctor put him on dalfampridine, which is available under the brand name Ampyra. Many MS medications are designed to reduce the duration of replapses, or they modify the disease to prevent relapses from happening. Dalfampridine, on the other hand, was designed specifically for helping people with MS to walk easier. And, from our personal experience, it works. All it took was two pills per day roughly 12 hours apart, and he was walking almost normally again in roughly four weeks. He ...

Tysabri is a disease-modifying drug that slows the progression of multiple sclerosis. Another benefit of Tysabri is that it reduces the frequency of MS flares, making this an ideal treatment for people who suffer from relapsing forms of MS. Unlike other MS drugs, Tysabri works by blocking white blood cells from the brain. Patients who don't get results with other disease-modifying medications often have better results with Tysabri. A common complaint about this medication is it tends to start wearing off after a few weeks, leaving patients feeling their symptoms more accutely during the week before their next injections. Regardless, ...

Methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid that is prescribed to treat acute exacerbatinos of multiple sclerosis symptoms. It's just one of many corticosteroids that can be used to treat MS relapses, but many doctors believe an elevated dosage of this medication is often the most effective treatment for relieving severe multiple sclerosis symptoms. This medication is administered with an IV. This medication works by reducing inflammation in the brain and allowing the body to recover more quickly from relapses. Patients often complain about its taste. Also, methylprednisolone can cause unpleasant side effects. However, patients commonly get desirable results when undergoing this treatment.

The costs of getting dental implants can add up, so what should people do if they need multiple teeth replaced? For that, consider an All-on Four arch implant. Rather than install implants for each tooth, these implants install full sets of teeth on either the upper or lower jaw for the cost of just four implants! This is accomplished through a minor surgical procedure in which an arch of synthetic teeth is anchored to the jaw with just four implant anchors. The result is straight, natural-looking teeth that looks fantastic while future deterioration of your jawbone. Perhaps the ...

When you need a few teeth replaced, a bridge has been the traditional solution dentists have offered. Multiple tooth implants are replacing the bridge, and offer a better and more permanent solution. The implants are titanium rods that are attached to your jaw. If decayed teeth are present they will have to be removed, and then the rod is placed. Over a couple of months the rods are given time to bond with the jawbone, and a temporary cap may be installed. Sometimes a second step of applying extensions is done. If there is no second step, the replacement ...
