It’s common for people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) to switch to a different disease modifying therapy (DMT) over the course of their treatment. For this reason, it benefits you to learn about the RRMS treatments on the market today. With about 20 disease-modifying therapies now approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, it can be difficult to keep track of all the treatment options available.

This quiz is designed to test your knowledge of relapsing-remitting MS treatments and help you decide whether it’s time to talk to your doctor about treatment options.
