Like MS itself, med efficacy can be as varied as the disease. Most of the mainstream meds tout a 40% reduction or slowdown in progression. For me, it's been better than that.
Most of the current therapies are injectables. There are a couple newer oral meds. Some have very difficult side effects. Upon diagnosis, your doctor will discuss med options. And of course you can opt to not take a med therapy. Some choose alternative treatments.
