i have been talking to my docs since my transplant last year, and they said that with my meds i would change the cellcept to imuran (since you can be on it when you are pregnant) and we are still trying to figure out what we will do about
the diamox (for my pseudotumor cerebri), and i was also told because we did try before my transplant and i was on plaquenil that you are not suppose to be on it when you are pregnant because the plaq is not a medication you can be on pregnant ( i noticed on your signature that you are still on it) also prednisone is definately ok to be on when you are pregnant because it is a chemical that our body makes naturally anyways and we just take a synthetic form of it through the predisone. and i know that when and if i get pregnant the docs (all of them) said that i would definately stay on the prednisone and even the prograf since the benefits of the medication out weights the possible and smaller risk to the pregnancy and the imuran would also replace the cellcept which works as both an antirejection and a lupus drug for me. i absolutely dont mean to alarm u and i would check with your rheumy, if possible call their office and see if you can get a message to your rheumy or possibly talk to another rheumy that is taking his/her place right now. i am by no means an expert on this subject, these are just my opinion and what i have been told, but being that i have been researching and speaking with my docs about
it at every appt with every doc i see related to my lupus i would definately make sure that you on and off the correct meds. hope you get some answers soon. you, your baby and your family are in my prayers.
