WHO IS CELLCEPT FOR?
CellCept® (mycophenolate mofetil) is a medicine given by prescription to people who had a kidney, heart or liver transplant. CellCept can help prevent rejection of the new organ.
Your body's immune system can tell that the new heart, liver or kidney is different and tries to reject it. CellCept is taken along with other anti-rejection medicines to help control your immune system. They help keep it from "rejecting" the transplant.
Follow your doctor's exact orders for taking CellCept and all other medicines.
