My rheumatologist is thinking of putting me on one of these two medications. I've been reading about them, but want to go with the one that has the fewest side effects. I also want to know which one would be better for rashes and other skin problems?
I take Mycophenolate (Callcept) with my Plaquenil!! Works great for me!!
I have been on Plaquenil for a year and helped mostly pain issues. Was recently placed on Azathyoprine as an addition and skin issues have completely cleared up! I still take precautions for the sun exposure because in the past i have reacted badly.
Hi I was on both Imuran and Cellcept i was put on both to save my kidneys Imuran did nothing for me soI was on Cellcept for 2 yrs it is the cousin to Cytoxn with is chemo all these are, Cytoxn in intravenous I did not mind Cytoxn it saved my kidneys, I will be honest Cellcept is different for everyone, i didn't like the way it made me fee but i was on 1500 mg 750 am and 750 pm I know this is sounds weird but i was blessed to get shingles so they couldn't keep me on it. I really never herd either one used for rash, but it is possible. My Rheumatologist put on Ketoconazole cream 2% it woks great. As for my kidneys i am doing holistic I am Stage 3 kidney disease and doing okay.
Good luck and many blessings
What I usually do is look up the medication and then the side affects then I would my doctor which one would she take if it was her going through this.
