    Default cellcept?

    what are some of the negative side effects of taking cellcept?

    I started taking it a few weeks ago, and while I have noticed that Im feeling a little better right now, I also have days where I feel really "off". Could this be some side effect?

    Ive definitely had some insomnia. I wake up every night after it took me forever to fall asleep, and then I dont fall back asleep. Its ridiculous. it may sound weird but do you think the fact that all my really long nails became weak and all cracked in half the week after I started taking it?

    I been on it for 10 years now. I think insomnia is one but it is keeping lupus in check

    I wouldnt doubt it, I have been off it week now been giving my methtrexate shots to myself on saturday. I dont know i feel like i traded one poison for another! I have taken methtrexate pill form and had more hair loss then i do with cellcept, and also diarehea 21 times a day! nausea! ect.. but since it helps with my joints i started again. Hopeful stopping cellcept doesnt start a cns attack again! got 2 lesions from that. okay im sorry! i will quit complaining!lol Hugs sweetie kathy

    I think meds cause too many other problems. I feel like im on so much. i dont know if my problems are lupus related or pill related. how can you really even tell when you start a new pill for something or other every month
