Default New drug approved for uncontrollable laughing and crying

For those of us MSers with this issue, Nuedexta could help dramatically.

The first drug specifically developed to treat uncontrollable laughing or crying, also called pseudobulbar affect, or PBA, has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Nuedexta™ (dextromethorphan hydrobromide and quinidine sulfate, formerly called AVP-923, Avanir Pharmaceuticals) is an oral therapy shown in clinical trials to significantly reduce episodes in people with MS, ALS and other disorders.

I have a touch of the uncontrollable laughter and crying. But not enough to do anything about it lol. It only shows up during high stress or getting too tired, so like any symptom management I just have to watch how hard I push myself and not get too stressed or tired (sometimes easier said than done)
