I have been diagnosed recently and in an effort to counteract muscle depletion I have been following a supplement regimen which includes creatine. I am still within childbearing years and would like to know if it would be safe for a fertile woman to take creatine.

This is a good question for Dr. Lava, our resident MS specialist.

Neil S Lava, MD responded:
I do not know if creatine will be a problem for you. However, I don't know that this is something you need to take.
Multiple sclerosis does not directly damaged muscle and you might want to discuss any supplementsyou take with your physician.

Thank you very much for the advice, Dr. Lava!
