I am on Cellcept for Myasthenia Gravis. I have been on 500mg twice a day for 3 months and my dose is being cut in half to try and combat significant side effects. I am wondering if I should expect any new symptoms as my body adjusts to the new dose.
Hello, not sure what side effects you are having. I was on cell cept for my disease. I had no side effects except, not sure which, but either liver or kidney affected and was not seeing the results I had hoped for which was to reduce my prednisone. I was on it six months or so.
However, I went right off of it, so I noticed nothing getting off. And we started a new drug. The prednisone may have masked things. however, except for things that affect the brain like pain killers and antidepressant and their kin, reducing a dose of meds like this generally help side effects go away.
I did find that the manufacturer would provide it free if you had financial need. As it Is quite expensive. Sorry, that is all I know, personally.
Good luck with the change. Hope it helps you with the side effects. Please let us know more if I did not help. More details we give in our history and questions the better we help each other.
Listed below are the patients instructions, & side effects for cellcept. Hope this helps you. Lowering the dose should avoid the side effects... Mary
