Here is My Question:
Do you guys recommend wearing a medical bracelet identifying people that have MS? What other information should be on it?
Medical bracelets haven't been something I've discussed much with my
patients. However, with more disease modifying therapies now
available, particularly our oral and infusion therapies that carry
additional risks, it would be reasonable to identify a diagnosis of MS
and the therapy one is on.

I have a MedicAlert bracelet for another issue unrelated to my MS, but when I started Tysabri and now that I am on Tecfidera, especially my pcp was supportive of my adding the MS meds to my information.
