People prescribed GILENYA in the US as of February 2014

GILENYA® has a pregnancy registry—click here to learn more.

*From January - May 2013, most eligible patients paid a $0 co-pay. Call 1-800-GILENYA for details. People for whom GILENYA has been prescribed are required to report any benefits they receive through the GILENYA Prescription Co-Pay Support Program to their commercial insurance company. This offer is not valid for prescriptions for which payment may be made in whole or in part under federal or state health programs, including but not limited to Medicare or Medicaid. This program is subject to termination or modification at any time.

GILENYA can result in a slow heart rate when first taken. Your first dose will be given in a medical facility where you will be watched for at least 6 hours. If you stop taking GILENYA for more than 14 days after your first month of treatment, you will need to repeat this observation.

Studies showed that GILENYA reduced the frequency of relapses by 52% in a 1-year study vs Avonex®, and by 54% in a 2-year study vs placebo. At the 1-year mark in a clinical trial, 83% of people on GILENYA were relapse-free. Of those people taking Avonex instead, 70% were relapse-free at year's end. In a separate study, 70% of the people on GILENYA were relapse-free for the entire 2 years. For the people taking placebo during that time, 46% of them stayed relapse-free.

Every GILENYA Guide on our site is a GILENYA patient who has said, "HEY MS, Take This!" They have been compensated by Novartis for their involvement. Individual results may vary.
