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.
You should have one pregnancy test immediately before starting CellCept and another pregnancy test 8 to 10 days later. Pregnancy tests should be repeated during routine follow-up visits with your doctor. Talk to your doctor about the results of all of your pregnancy tests.
If you are a woman who can get pregnant, you must use acceptable birth control during your entire CellCept therapy, and continue birth control for 6 weeks after you stop taking CellCept, unless you choose to abstain from sexual intercourse with a man completely. Talk to your doctor about other birth control methods that you can use while taking CellCept.
If you plan to become pregnant, talk with your doctor. You and your doctor can decide if other medicines to prevent rejection may be right for you.
If you become pregnant while taking CellCept, do not stop taking CellCept. Call your doctor right away. In certain situations, you and your doctor may decide that taking CellCept is more important to your health than the possible risks to your unborn baby.
People taking high doses of CellCept each day may have a decrease in blood counts, including white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.
Your doctor will do blood tests before you start taking CellCept and during therapy with CellCept to check your blood cell counts.
Tell your doctor right away if you have any signs of infection, or any unexpected bruising or bleeding, unusual tiredness, lack of energy, dizziness or fainting.
The most common side effects include: diarrhea, vomiting, pain, stomach area pain, swelling of the lower legs, ankles and feet, and high blood pressure.
These are not all of the possible side effects of CellCept. Tell your doctor about any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.
