Having read that fluoxetine, aka prozac, may slow the progression of MS, I started taking it some days ago at a dosage of 20 mg per day. One cannot know, in the short term, whether it is slowing progression, but I did become immediately aware that it seems to have significantly quieted the ringing in my ears and also chased away the severe daily headaches - two unanticipated benefits. I also picked up some plain old ibuprofen, which seems to deal fairly well with milder headaches. So I'm feeling much more comfortable these days and able to function much better, rather than just sitting at home with an icepack on my head.
