You're not going to believe this.... I had an adverse reaction to the Cellcept when I started taking 1000mg x 2 daily. Started that dose last Sunday and ever since then I have been having weakness, dizziness, balance issues, strange "head" buzzing, no appetite, flu symptoms. So I called my rheumy and her nurse told me to immediately stop taking it. I'll talk with my rheumy tomorrow. Good thing this was discovered before I shelled out another $400 for my next prescription!
I was on Imuran for 10 years and it just stopped doing its job. Now I don't know what I'll be taking.... Cyclosporine is overkill as I don't have any kidney involvement. Cytoxan is overkill too. I wonder how I'd do just on Prednisone? Hmmmmm. A conundrum.
