  • Mutiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive degenerative disease that, left untreated, can lead to increasingly higher disability. New developments in the drug pipeline have helped improve disease prognosis and life expectancy, but treatment is expensive and complicated.

Specialty pharmacies, like Accredo, can provide the counseling and support that MS patients need to ensure better adherence, fewer hospitalizations and healthier outcomes.
