Test Your Medicine Knowledge

The correct answer is B.
High doses of intravenous corticosteroids, such as methylprednisolone (1000 mg daily for 3-5 consecutive days) are the drug of choice to reduce the duration of relapse/symptomatic attacks, in multiple sclerosis (MS).

Amantadine is often used for the treatment of fatigue in MS but is not specifically indicated to reduce the duration of significant MS relapses. Metoprolol has no role in the treatment of MS.

If a patient suffers depression, antidepressants may be used but they do not reduce the duration of MS exacerbations.
