i have lupus nephritis, was dx'd last yr and have since been on Prednisone and Cellcept. I haven't had bas side effects, except for weight gain and Cushing's syndrome. I take 1500 mg of Cellcept per day and my Prednisone dose has been reduced from 60 mg to 5 mg per day currently.
I haven't done my blood tests yet since three months, but I feel okay.
Good luck to you all!!
