Actually Medicare DOES cover Cellcept, you just need a prior authorization. How I know? I was on cellcept, AND I ironically have Medicare too. Immuran gave me horrid side effects, and I had to be removed off that. I had severe vomiting and loose stools of blood, I also lost my thick hair to really thin hair on Immuran. But each person is different. We can say what happened to us, but each person is different. Like if you read some of the above, some got lucky and didnt get any problems! Try the immuran, and if you did ok with cellcept and want to restart it ask your rheumy to do a prior authorization with medicare for it. Also, you will run into the same immuran, your insurance will kick it pretty fast. You are supposed to have a prior authorization for both of those medications. Your rheumy can talk to your insurance and get prior ops (slang for authroization) and get it all covered.
