Anyone try Mavenclad?

Hello everyone. I am new here, my husband has RRMS and was diagnosed 5 years ago at age 31. Symptomatically he is doing well, however his MRI’s show new disease activity. My husband was on Copaxone for a few years however he had a bad skin reaction to it and went off treatment entirely. The neurologist has recommended we try a new drug called Mavenclad (Cladribine). We have been looking at the side effects and are very concerned with how the drug lowers the immune system and will make him more susceptible to infections including shingles and TB. So I am looking for anyone out there who has taken Mavenclad and what your experience with the drug is, what side effects have you had? Anything you can share about taking the drug?

I really appreciate your help!! Best wishes to all 🙂

thank you. S.
