after 3 months taking Cell Cept my doc decided to stop it because of some problems that it has with my body. now its 2 years am not taking cell cept and am good .
I was on Cell Cept for quite a few years with no problems. About two years ago I switched to Myfortic because my insurance company wouldn't pay for the Cell Cept anymore. No problems until recently. Now it makes me nauseous and I suddenly throw up if I take more than one pill in the am and one in the pm. :(
I use to take Cellcept after my double lung transplant , but 10 1/2 yrs. later I could not tolerate it. It caused extreme diarrhea , so the doctor prescribed me Myfortic and all is back to normal. I will have my 12 yrs. transplant done the 19 of December.
i have been on myfortic 1400 once a day for 9 weeks now im ok with it hasnt really caused me any problems that ive noticed xx
I hear you. For now they have left me on a maintenance dose of one Valcyte per day. It definitely is expensive, thankfully my insurance pays for it. Congratulations on almost 22 years with your new kidney!!
Yes, they put me on Valcyte, but within 2 weeks after going off I get the CMV back. That is one expensive drug. I worry about the impact of all these high powered drugs on my kidney. I had had 2 rejection episodes and am 21years 11 months out! Want to stay healthy!
Looking to hear questions and comments from those of you taking Myfortic.
