    Question Myfortic?

    Is anyone on Myfortic? I've been reading about it online, and it sounds like a version of Cellcept that is easier on the stomach. I realize that because of my digestive issues and history with ulcers and GERD, I probably can't handle Cellcept, but maybe Myfortic...? If you are taking it, have you had major side effects from it? Does anyone here take it who also has GERD or other digestive issues? Thanks for any insights you have - I'm so confused!

    Thanks so much, danica! I have seen the first two links, but not the last one. I'm still not sure what I want to do, but I will ask the rheumatologist about it. I see one rheumy next Monday, and the one I will likely switch to in May. I'll post more about it after I know more. Thanks again!
