I was put on Cellcept in '06 after my kidney transplant. I did have a lupus flare in '07, but I was and still am on prednisone (5mg/day). In '08 I changed to Imuran becuase my hubby and I decided we wanted to try for a baby. So long story short, after two years and a baby later, I am still on Imuran and prednisone. I think Cellcept worked well, but it did give me diarrhea. However, for me the Imuran works better, and the prednisone is only a "maintance" dose, according to the docs ( they say that its about what my body would produce, or something like that). And right now I am only on six different kinds of meds, the lowest since I was diagnosed in '95, and I refuse to meds/doses because right now everything is ok and I don't want to tempt fate.
Hope this helps.
