|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looked at the use of a combination of drugs of lofepramine, L-phenylalanine and vitamin B12 in treating multiple sclerosis. Participants were enrolled from an outpatient clinic, and had to have been relapse free for 6 months. Participants were then given a combination of the drugs or a placebo. The results showed that the use of vitamin b12 helped to reduce pain and depression. Adding the lofepramine and L-phenylalanine helped to improve their condition further.
