If I have had CCSVI treatment or if I am considering CCSVI treatment, should I stop taking my disease modifying drugs? (DMDs)
MS patients should consult with their personal physicians regarding all treatment decisions. Note that Dr. Zamboni strongly recommended that all RRMS patients currently on DMDs, who had the CCSVI procedure, remain on their disease modifying drugs. The FDA approved DMDs have been helpful for many patients, and combining DMDs with the CCSVI procedures does not appear to add any additional risk for the patient.
