So I have been off azathioprine for two weeks and on Cellcept for for two weeks now. I have noticed maybe a 15% change for the better w/my UC and actually think my kidneys are getting worse I notice more bubbles and swelling. My UC wasn't bad before, I was just having 1 to 2 bm's a day, sometimes w/blood. Haven't had much blood at all now.
Cellcept can also be used for UC in some cases it is also an immune suppressor. I'll try to post to let everyone know how it goes.
I think I will know more next month after it has been in my system for a while.
Beth, 33 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
