i am on it and the side effects are minimal.
i am on 2000 mg a day but i understand it can go up to 3000.
good luck. i saw in another thread that you were comparing to cytoxan..
there is no comparison on side effects. cellcept is milder and if it works for you, a better alternative.
i wish you as much success with it as i had.
What about the cost? With insurance my cost would be $85.00 a month for 1000 mg dose. I'm seriously considering the Imuran for 2 reasons. I was on it before and had good results with minimal side affects and the cost! Whew!
Does your insurance coverage include prescription mail order? For me, Cellcept will be $99 a month with insurance at the pharmacy or I can get 3 month's worth for $50. My rheumatologist was not happy to write a 3 month prescription. Threatened to revoke it if I missed even 1 lab appointment.... I am nervous about taking this drug so I plan to be very compliant.
Thanks so much for the reply.
The mail order program is not a very good one. You pay 3 months co-pays and get 3 months supply of meds. Really strange!! I'm really leaning towards Imuran as I've been on it before in the past and it was successful for me.
