Yes I have been on cellcept and plaquenil for 8 months now. I tolerate it well with no side effects. I feel that it works better than imuran for me.

I just got off Cellcept I was in it for 3 months. My reaction to it was horrible. It caused me to flare up for the whole 3 months I was on it. It also caused me to bruise just from a very light touch. The worse tho was it caused me a migraine that could not be controlled for 2 months it was causing my ocular never to swell. I was in an out of the hospital from the pain an fevers. Also my Blood pressure would spike 170/120 an then drop 100/70 It was just a bad experience for me.

Don't let my experience worry you tho because I have a friend that has been on it two years an feels like she doesn't even have lupus anymore. I'm just very sensitive to a lot of medicine since my lupus

Yes I take cellcept I take 3000mg a day when I first started it made me even more tired than I already was but I have been on it for awhile now and I have no side effects from it. Hope it works out for you.

Wow, that is awful! My experience with most drugs is that I usually get the rare side effects that affect 1% of patients. 😕

Last summer when I was experiencing lupus nephritis, my doctors put me on Cellcept and Imuran. I ended up in the hospital after taking both medications... My body doesn't like itself of the drugs that purportedly will help me!

I Started Taking CellCept 2000mg Daily. How Low Was Your WBC Count On This Medication? I Was Told This Is A Lot Stronger Than Methotrexate.
