    I'm about to start treatment for my MS and will be taking a medication called Mavenclad. So far I haven't met anyone else who has been or is taking the drug, even though it's been around in other countries for over fifty years. As far as I know I will be one of the first in the US to take the medication because it was just approved by the FDA in March.

    Has anyone on MS Connection taken it before?

    Must not be anyone taking it since nobody replied!  Did you ever start it?  I;ve been thinking about trying it myself.  On Ocrevus right now but not seeing any improvement in my mobility.  Let me know if you decided to try it and how it went?

    I have not. But I'll be eager to hear your experiences later.

    You've probably alread read the stuff about Mavenclad on the MS Society's web site here, but perhaps you haven't seen Dr. Boster's videos about Mavenclad on his YouTube channel.

    I just finished week 1 of Mavenclad. The side effects have been very minimal -just a headache for me. 

    Hoping DMT works as well as expected, it sure beats having to take 3 injections per week.
