Covid treatments for people with MS

June 26, 2024 | Pippa Vincent-Cooke

In light of the current increase in numbers of cases of Covid-19, we thought it would be worth sharing again information about the treatments available for people with MS who test positive.

These treatments can be taken early, with the aim of preventing you from getting so ill that you need to go into hospital. They should be taken as soon as possible after a positive Covid-19 test.

If you test positive, you should call your GP or NHS 111 as soon as you can. They may have questions for you about your MS or any other conditions that you have, and about any medicines that you currently take. They will organise a referral for treatment if necessary. 

Some Covid-19 treatments are given as a drip or infusion into your arm. For this kind of treatment you will need to got to a local hospital or health centre. 

For further information about the available treatments, please visit the MS Trust website.
