  • Greetings all - I take 500mg Cellcept twice a day, 5mg prednizone (corticosteroid) and 4mg Advograf. Eat like two horses, but swim a lot, which keeps my weight at 102kg. Went up to 117kg from 98kg after my transplant in March 2013. My cousin, he is blessed, gave me one of his kidneys and my life changed from being grateful to being on dialysis to being able to live a normal life. Blessings to all those who have been gifted with new life through the generosity of a donor, living or passed.

  • Hi Everyone!!

    It's been awhile since my last posting, however I am doing wonderful and wanted to respond to the Cellcept question.

    I have been using Cellcept for over four years and the only apparent side effect I am having is a lost of appetite. I have also lost 40 pounds, now none of my cloths fit lol. I gotten to the point of one to two meals a day which has contributed to reduced blood pressure as well as eliminating Sodium.

    My doctor prescribed Cellcept as an addition to my Prograf medication to reduce the impact Prograf has on my Kidneys. I hope my answer is helpful and I wish everyone good health, wealth and strong sprite.

    Peace

  • Hi  Virginia and Jack

    When someone sends a message to the group, the message is not posted in the group. With the new upgrade I hope this problem is added to the change.

    Regarding paying the twenty percent- I would try and fundraise or contact the drug assistance programs for Cellcept.
