Myfortic (mycophenolic acid) for Rejection Prophylaxis: “I had a liver and kidney transplant and have been on Myfortic for at least 4 years after being switched from regular mycophenalate. Both medicines have worked well for me for years. The only negative I've had is periods of severe diarrhea with very little ability to control it. Once the dose was lowered this symptom is now tolerable.”

Myfortic (mycophenolic acid) for Rejection Prophylaxis: “Due to a lung transplant I have been on Myfortic for just under a year. During this time I've had two high potassium episodes where I was hospitalized due to eating to many dark green vegetables. Even with the side effects this drug along with Prednisone and Prograf have proven very effective.”

For Dermatomyositis: “I’ve been taking mycophenolic acid for a year and my symptoms are well controlled with no side effects whatsoever. It is pricier than Cellcept (copay is $100 per month!) but Cellcept made my heart race.”

For Dermatomyositis: “Started originally on Cellcept and felt significantly better and Dermatomyositis rash was well controlled until I had sudden onset of GI symptoms. Doc immediately took me off then started me on Myfortic and although GI is better I don't think it works as well as Cellcept. I may be considering a change to MTX.”
