    Hello everyone, I moved to Jacksonville Fl four months ago from Ohio due to the constant climate changes and it's just always cold or raining or cloudy and depressing in Ohio. I am seeing a new Neurologist this Tuesday and I am wondering what others are on who are in progressive M.S. I have had M.S. for twenty five years diagnosed. I am currently on Methotrexate 2.5 mg that I take six of every Sunday and then take 1 mg of folic acid daily. Is anyone on anything else that is promising for progressive M.S. I am at a remission status, but there are a lot of side effects and blood work when on this medication. Thank you for any input you may have..

    Have you read the research on low dose bendryl? I haven't done much reading on it so I don't know if it would be specifically helpful for you being progressive but I figured I would mention it. There are some links to information on it on the information section I believe.
