((Tammy)) I'm sorry to hear of your kidney diagnosis. I've been on Cellcept 1 1/2 years. I started it because not only did I have horrible fatigue, I had bad neuro issues- I was in constant lupus fog, I couldn't drive (rode the bus), developed a terrible stutter, and fell frequently. Anyway, like Lynnwood, AmyTX and Fran, Cellcept gave me my life back.
Cellcept is a drug used for transplant patients cause it supresses the immune system. That being said, you need to avoid anyone with a communicable disease (I had swine flue in Jan). That's also when my constant sinus infection started. I had sinus surgery a few weeks ago which went great. BTW, I also lost lots of hair, but it all grew back while still on Cellcept.
Even with these side effects, the docs can only have my Cellcept when they pry it from my cold, dead, fingers. I hope you give it a try without reservations. It may work wonders for you! Love, Butterflake
