      I am a 71 year old gentleman diagonosed with CIDP in 1993. Presently, I am taking IVIG monthly, and Imuran – 3 a day. My neurologist suggested I substitute Cellcept for Imuran. Warnings and side effects are very, very scary! Has anyone had any experience with Cellcept (good or bad).

      Hi Tom,

      My suggestion is to post this question in the GBS Adult forum, because alot of people don’t read all the different forums.
