    Default Cellcept

    I started cellcept about 2 months ago. At this point I don't feel much change from it. I started off on 500mg a day then moved to 1000mg now I'm at 1500mg a day. I have some weird side effects from it but my rheumatologist wants me to try to stick it out. Is any one else on cellcept? How are you doing on it? Also of all the thing I should worry about with having lupus one of my biggest fears is since the cellcept suppresses my immune system I'm afraid of getting some sort of infection. Does anyone else have this fear?

    To some extent, we all fear getting some type of infection. Lupus is an over-active immune system, immunosuppressants slow down that over activity and, thusly, makes a more prone to infection and/or catching something. So, we have to be very careful where we go, who we are around, and how we care for ourselves. So, your fear is a reasonable one and one in which you are not alone.
    I do not take Cellcept, but there are many here who do. I hope that someone responds to you. I wish you the very best.

    Peace and Blessings

    I also do not take cellcept .... but take other immune suppressant medication.

    it is always a fear.
    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    I am taking Mycophenolate Mofetil also. Butbwith different brand. It is called Mycept. It is cheaper than cellcept. I do not experience any side effects with it.
