Thanks Lynnwood. I was doubtful anyone had tried this combo, but figured it was worth a try in asking. After 20+ years I'm used to being a guinea pig, my doctor jokes that I never seem to fit the typical mold, but hey isn't that what lupus is all about?! I did very well on Cellcept for many years, never had any issues with it. My body just seemed to become used to it after so many years I guess and it became infective. I'm hoping after being off of it for about 8 months and restarting it that it will have the effect it did years ago. As for mixing it with the Arava, I totally agree with you and watching the liver counts. I have had issues with my liver when my lupus acts up and due to other medications before so I will be hyper vigilant in assuring labs are drawn on a timely manner.
Married the love of my life, mother of 2 beautiful adult children, 1 amazing daughter in law, and 1 grandson who is truly a gift from God! lupus SLE 1996, sjorgrens, raynauds. My worst nightmare was imagined when my son was diagnosed with RA and lupus NPSLE at 19. I try to live life as though everyday is a blessing, otherwise it would be hard to put one foot in front of the other...hugs
