Hi Aslam - I have taken this antibiotic without issue a few times. Also known as Augmentin, it is a safe and effective penicillin based medicine. The issues with it and transplants stem mostly from frequent or longer term use and gastrointestinal problems. Please have your spouse follow the dosing instructions report any side effects.
Like Bo I am a new member today. I wish I had his problem of losing weight, I can't stop gaining it. My cadaver transplant in Jan 2017 was a maximum high risk; intravenous drug user with early stage polycystic kidney disease. I doubt that there is anyone on the forum with this problem but if there is I'd love to hear from them. There is little information available on this topic and I believe I am a first for my transplant center. Currently am doing well with minimum side effects. from the antirejection medication
This is a common side effect of cellcept and if you just started it, it might have disappeared as you body gets used to it. For you, I would talk with your team to see if you can switch to another drug or at least lower your dose to lessen the symptoms.
Early on, you can feel things getting "acquainted", because connective tissue and structural fat hasn't grown to support the new kidney. You should simply ask the Tx team for their opinion on this issue, that's what they are there for.
