This is old news...

+ the correct title should be "Clemastine Fumarate restores Myelin in RR MS"

Many PPMS (including me) have tried this med for several months, at the same dosage than the study (2 * 5.36 mg/day).
We haven't noticed any positive result.

I'm not saying it means CF definitely doesn't work for progressive ms, but keep in mind the study was performed on RR, not PP/SP

Whether Myelin is really restored by CLEMASTINE FUMARATE or not is yet to be proven. The major side effect of CLEMASTINE FUMARATE, drowsiness, is a major hurdle to deal with though.

BUT...

it has been found that Myelin does repair itself in time, slowly, up to about 8 years, but the fact that is does repair itself is exciting news!

Clemastine is known to have anticholinergic activity and therefore may increase risks of dementia with long term use.

It is really not important. Myelin is just the tip of the iceberg. The important therapy would be one that prevents cortical lesions and neuron damage.
