What is Mayzent?

Mayzent is a prescription medicine given to adults to treat relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis, including:

  • Clinically isolated syndrome (CIS)
  • Relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS)
  • Secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS)

Although MS is incurable, medications like Mayzent can help to slow the progression of your condition. Mayzent can help to reduce the damage caused by your white blood cells to the nerves in your brain and spine, reducing the number of relapses you have and slowing the progression of your MS. 

Mayzent is a prescription medication you take as a tablet you swallow. You typically take one or more tablets a day, but make sure you always take your Mayzent exactly as described by the doctor who prescribes it to you.

Mayzent active ingredients

The active ingredient in Mayzent is called siponimod. Siponimod helps to protect your central nervous system from damage caused by your immune system. It works by attaching to the surface of some of your white blood cells, called lymphocytes, at sites called sphingosine-1-phosphate receptors. By attaching to these receptors, siponimod stops your lymphocytes from moving to your central nervous system, limiting the inflammation and damage they can cause. 

Mayzent side effects & Mayzent drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Mayzent include:

  • Headaches
  • A rise in blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High liver enzyme levels in blood tests

In rare instances, Mayzent can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • A slowed heart rate (bradycardia or bradyarrhythmia) when you first start taking Mayzent – a slowed heart rate can cause heart complications, including heart failure
  • An increased risk of infections, including serious infections (Mayzent reduces the number of white blood cells in your blood, which can lower your immune system function)
  • Swelling and narrowing of the blood vessels in your brain (posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome), that can cause strokes
  • A vision problem called macular edema that can cause changes to your vision
  • A rise in blood pressure to dangerous levels (hypertension)
  • Liver problems that can reduce liver function
  • New or worsening breathing problems
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Severe worsening of multiple sclerosis symptoms after stopping Mayzent compared to your symptoms before or during treatment

Mayzent can interact with:

  • Any other medications taken for multiple sclerosis
  • Medications taken for an irregular heartbeat, such as amiodarone, procainamide, quinidine, or sotalol
  • Medications that slow down your heartbeat, such digoxin or ivabradine, calcium channel blockers like diltiazem or verapamil, or beta blockers like bisoprolol or metoprolol
  • Medications that alter how your immune system works, like immunosuppressants or chemotherapy drugs
  • A type of vaccine called a live attenuated vaccine
  • Medications taken to treat fungal infections, including fluconazole
  • Carbamazepine, an anticonvulsant to reduce the risk of seizures
  • Modafinil, a medication taken to treat certain sleep disorders
  • Light therapy (phototherapy) with UV radiation or PUVA photochemotherapy
