I've been on it for 16 days after starting on 500mg twice a day for 2 weeks, and now 1000mg twice a day. Not sure how I'm feeling to be honest. I'm having quite a bit of hair loss, bloating, gas (burping), weight gain, and more joint pain than before. I was on Imuran for a decade and it just stopped working for me, so that's why I switched over to Cellcept. I'm hoping these side effects go away.
