So my I may need to go on Cellcept for my kidneys and my Kidney Doc talked to my GI and they dont want me to be on Cellcept and Imuran at the same time (both are immune suppressing drugs). So, my GI "thinks" the Cellcept will help me, but I do not want to flare up again.
So I am going to find a second opinion. If I need to go on Cellcept, then I think my only options are pred & remicade, unless the Cellcept itself will help me. Which I may just try to see if it does, but I want to make that decision myself.
I just wanted to see if anyone else ever took Cellcept and what your experiences were/are?
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
