There's some indication that an anti-depressant--clomipramine (Anafranil)-- may be effective against progressive MS. Unfortunately, this article (in Multiple Sclerosis News Today, December 30, 2017) doesn't make it clear whether it is PPMS or SPMS (or both) that is under discussion, but the mice used in the experiment are said to have been mice whose mouse-MS (EAE, or experimental autoimmune encephalitis) most closely resembles SPMS.
