Reviews - What do customers think about Multiple Sclerosis: The Guide to Treatment and Management?
Very clinical Dec 11, 2007
This IS a wonderful book; however I found it to be too clinical. It seems perfect for the doctor who wants to keep abreast of current treatments for MS. I'm looking for a book that talks more about the symptoms...how to cope....how to deal with fatigue and MS in general. I'm just newly diagnosed and wanted a "down home" approach to finding information. I came back to buy MS for Dummies...sounds silly, but I've found those books to be informative in an almost TOO simple fashion...but it's what I need right now at the beginning of this journey.
The best and most responsible update of MS Mar 18, 2007
This is a book every MS patent should read. Especially those in early stages. This book is a very thorough and responsible review of MS
Excellent resource Oct 2, 2001
When I was diagnosed my doctor threw 4 prescriptions at me for various steriods and other drugs and sent me on my way - wouldn't answer my questions (too busy) So off I went, got the perscriptions filled, had a nurse insert an IV and got busy. Luckily I had ordered this book in anticipation of the diagosis and it arrived as I started treatment. The first chapter is on Treatment for acute eexacerbations and it explained everything! The following chapters are: Treatments that effect long term course of the disease (the interferon drugs used in the US as well as drugs being used in other parts of the world and those under development), Symptomatic treatment of MS (fatigue, bladder issues, cognition, all the basic symptoms), Alternative therapies (some strange things mentioned here but the authors diplomatically describe what they are, id the risks and provide evaluations/conclusions). I really like this book. It helped me when my doctor could not....now I've got a better doctor, one who specializes in MS, but I still use this book to augment my understanding.
