    • Hi Chris,

      Welcome to the MS forums and good luck with your Mavenclad. Since it was only approved in the US last March there might not be many experiences to share. However, the med has been available in the UK as cladribine, so some of our forum members on that side of the pond may have some experience with it. Here’s what the UK’s MS Society’s website has to say about it:

      “Relapses dropped by 58% compared to a placebo (a dummy pill with no drug in it)

      This means that during the two years of the trial, on average, people saw a drop of 58% in the number of relapses they had. This was compared to people who took the placebo. During the two years after the trial ended this drop was kept up.

      Disability getting worse was slowed by 33% compared to the placebo

      This means that in the trial, on average, people saw a drop of 33% in the risk of their disability getting worse (compared to people who took the dummy pill).

      Over the two years the trial lasted, nearly half of people (46%) had no signs their MS was still active.”
