What should I ask my doctor about generic medications for MS?

Be sure to ask your doctor whether generic drugs, which are less expensive than brand-name drugs, may be used to fill your prescription if you have multiple sclerosis (MS). Ask if the generic drug differs from the brand-name drug in terms of efficacy. Also ask your doctor for booklets or other literature on the use and possible side effects of prescribed drugs.
