Should I discuss the alternative therapy for multiple sclerosis with my doctor?

ANSWER

Discuss this and all therapies you'd like to try with your doctor. Make sure he knows what specific therapy you're considering so he can discuss possible side effects and how it may affect your current treatment. Your doctor can also give you information on other patients who may have tried the same therapy.
