Please read all three, and then synthesize the information to help you formulate your own opinion, providing support addressing which line of treatment–IV corticosteroids or bioequivalent treatment would be the better route to take. Remember, you must address risks vs benefits of both routes, explain what optic neuritis is and how it occurs as well. If its onset is sudden, what disease processes should be ruled out immediately in a patient presenting with optic neuritis?

Please read the following articles.

Position Paper
Above, click on blue links above OR copy and paste the URLs into your browser for the three separate
articles. Please read all three, and then synthesize the information to help you formulate your own
opinion, providing support addressing which line of treatment–IV corticosteroids or bioequivalent
treatment would be the better route to take. Remember, you must address risks vs benefits of both
routes, explain what optic neuritis is and how it occurs as well. If its onset is sudden, what disease
processes should be ruled out immediately in a patient presenting with optic neuritis?
