i'm on 2,500mg cellcept for my nephritis. before going on cellcept i had 1035mg of protein in my urine, now thanks to cellcept i only have about 500mg. the cellcept has drastically helped with the inflammation of my kidneys, so i am very thankful for it.
fortunately i never experienced some of the side effects of cellcept, like the diarrhea/vomiting that seems to be fairly common with it. my rheumatologist started me off slow though, first with 1,000mg, then we increased to 1,500mg after a few weeks, then to 2,000mg, and now finally to 2,500mg. the full dosage you can take is 3,000mg. hopefully i won't need to go any higher.
since it's an immunosuppressant, you have to be careful about getting sick. DO NOT hesitate to go to your general practitioner every time you catch something so you can get on antibiotics. i've been sick a couple times already since starting cellcept, which was more frequent than i've ever been sick before. the first time i didn't go to the doctor, and i ended up catching a secondary infection and got even worse. this time i went to the doctor and got on antibiotics. and he told me don't hesitate to come see him anymore. you have to be careful when you are on cellcept.
