    Default Celcept

    Im ok with the daily dose of meds but Come on, those huge pills on an empty stomach? thanks to whoever came up with that one!!
    Like clockwork every day at the same time, i'm ready to hurl. I have an extremely weak stomach and the nausea pills i was prescribed don't help at all. Am i really doing that much damage by eating less than two hours before i have to take it? or not waiting an entire hour after i take it to eat? Iv come a long way since i was diagnosed two years ago but there are still alot of parts of this disease that i don't really know how to deal with

    Idk but I always have to eat a little something when I take cellcept. Really it all depends on how you react to it, I remember when I first got on it I threw up a lot especially in the morning bc I was so hungry.

    I too have the same issue with cellcept. I was vomiting a lot. I just switched to myfortic its just been a bit over a week not going so good. My rheumy told me it was okay for me to take it with food. She also told me that they are much stricter with transplant paitents as far as not eating but in a lupus case it was fine. That's just what *my* rheumy said. I would perhaps talk to your dr and see. Good luck I feel for you.

    When I first started Cellcept I threw up all the time, so my doc and I reduced my dose to let my body get used to it, it's been almost a year since and now I'm up to the full dose and I have to increase some more cause my lupus is still very active.

    I'm also having an issue with cellcept. Its causing me to have a cough and sore throat. Also, my muscles hurt and I feel run down. I take 3000mg a day. The coughing has gotten so bad that tonight I threw up all over my bed.

    I had to eat something when I started Cellcept plus I was also on prednisone so eating regularly was crucial to not be nauseated or miserable all day. Talk to your Dr because mine gave me permission. The side effects got better for me.
