Reply To: weaning off of Prednisone

I have not taken any immunosuppressant drugs since being weaned from Prednisone a few years ago. I dropped from 60MG per day to zip over about 4 months.

Because I have never taken CellCept I can’t comment on its side affects from experience. However, from reading about it many of its precautions are similar to Prednisone. In addition to reading about the drug here in the forum, here are some external links that address the side affects and precautions of CellCept:

Getting to know and working with a new doctor can be challenging, but you have learned a lot about this disease and that will help steer a straight path. I hope it all works out for the best and you are continuing to improve.
