I take two 500 mg tablets of cellcept (mycophenolate) two times a day one hour before or two hours after I eat. My doctor specified that I have to take the pills without food, but after researching the pill I found that a lot of people eat food with the pill to settle their stomach. If you're on the medication, how do you take them?
I am curious. Ever since I started Cellcept a few weeks ago, my fatigue has gotten so much worse. This stuff is supposed to help me get better and I feel drained and crappy all the time! Is this a medication that you need to get used to? Or, is this it?
How many on here suffer from lupus nephritis? If so what are your current treatments. My symptoms right now include lower body edema and high blood pressure. I am taking cyclosporine but want to seek out other treatments with my nephrologist. What are your symptoms and other medications that you take for a nephritis?
Has anyone else been on Cyclosporin? Dr is looking for another drug to add to control lupus besides plaqunil benlysta and prednisone. I had previously tried methotrexate, azathioprine and cellcept with different reasons on why we needed to switch. Since this is less common looking for more input on side effects to expect. Is there nausea when startup that goes away? Toxicity issues to look out for? Issues with contraceptive use? Anything else?
Thanks for the info.
For those of you who have kidney involvement with this disease how did u find out or what were the clues? My pcp tested my urine yesterday as i was having some problems with using the bathroom. I would feel like i had to go real bad and when i did i only went a little bit, this has been happening on and off for about a month, some days im fine others im not, so they tested my urine and it came back with protein, leukocytes, and blood in my urine. Is this something that i need to be concerned… read more
I was wondering if anyone else has been diagnosed with this and what medication are you on for treatment? My kidney doctor possibly wants to put me on cyclosporine but after reading up on it I'm real iffy. The side effects are crazy!
for a few years i have had these cut things around my finger nails on multiple fingers on both hands, and i always wondered why because i don’t pick at my fingers. i just found out this kind of thing happens in people who have Lupus. has this ever happened to anyone else?
Just wondering how Lupus Nephritus may have started for others. What treatments and other signs and symptoms? Thx
