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.

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.

I use to take Benlysta (IV Infusion), Methotrexate (Injection), Plaquenil, and Methylprednisone, but my Systemic Lupus was continuously attacking my heart and causing pericarditis and also caused permanent damage to my heart valves. My doctor said that I needed to move to something a lot stronger. I am now on Benlysta (IV Infusion), CellCept (2000 MG Daily), Plaquenil, and Methylprednisone. I'm curious if others know how low their immune system was when they were on CellCept. Did anyone get sick… read more

Imuran Vs CellCept?

Imuran Vs CellCept?

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?

Typically Rheumatologist prescribe cellcept if skin problems are a prominent issue or symptom that you are experiencing. It is the most helpful for skin rashes.

@A MyLupusTeam Member
Voclosporin is a pill. Common name is Lupkynis. Was the Benlysta helping you? I felt like it was helping me then it slowly started to lose its effectiveness. I really don't think… read more

Cellcept

Cellcept

I am being switched from Methotrexate to Cellcept, and then to add 200mg of Plaquenil back in in a week if I tolerate cellcept. Going slow with cellcept 250mg twice a day. Rheumatologist feels I have a CTD with an underlying myositis and lupus because of my elevated CK. Prednisone has brought it down, now only on 7mg. All my warriors give my the scoop on cellcept, the good,,bad, ugly, and has it helped your symptoms, if so, in what ways.

Problems With Generic Plaquenil

Problems With Generic Plaquenil

Hi everyone
I’ve been taking Plaquenil for a total of 14 years. Recently I stopped taking it for a few weeks to prevent me getting a fib from the prednisone that was given for my asthma and Covid . I am now having problems with certain manufacturer of the generic hydroxychloroquine . Some make me itch but no rash . Apparently it’s the fillers that they use. Has anyone run into a problem like this ? I hate the thought of having to search for a new one. Last time I had to go to different… read more

I think it may be advisable to try to find a form of plaquenil (perhaps the brand name) to take that does agree with you, if at all possible. Plaquenil is the best drug for us, per national experts… read more

Has anyone been put on the chemo pill as part of their treatment program?

I haven't found it to be worth it, but some people benefit greatly. I will say that the drug is extremely expensive depending on your insurance. Luckily mine is good and I already hit my max this year… read more
