Mavenclad starts today!!!

I'm overthinking. My first DMD was Rebif 12 years ago... it knocked me around, I stuck with it for a year and the side effects didn't ease. Four years later I was part of the Tecfidera trial which I was pulled off half way through for the side effects. For the last 8 years I've been going it alone with diet and exercise and all was going really well until I caught Covid for the first time in September 2022... this sparked a brilliant auto immune response from my stupid body... relapses, new lesions, pernicious anaemia, psoriasis, lichen sclerosis and even asthma... hence we're at today. Neuro was adamant Mavenclad was for me as it is the "most tolerated"... I'm struggling to find first hand real stories of people who have taken Mavenclad... is it the miracle it's made out to be? What are the side effects like? How long do they last? How and when did you take your meds? I have to start today and I am aware I am really starting to overthink now my partner has got to work away overnight so I'll be home alone... eek.

Hi, I was diagnosed in June 2023 and mavenclad is my first DMT. I was so nervous about it. I’ve never been one to take medication for anything really and then MS hit me! However, I can honestly say I haven’t had many side effects at all whilst taking it. I know everyone is different, but I hope it goes well for you :)


Hi I’m Suzanne and I am about to start in Mavanclad. I can’t really find much on here about it and wondered if you would be able to let me know how it has been for you? Many Thanks
