Mycophenolate Sodium

    • February 4, 2017 at 12:08 am

      Does anyone have any experience with Mycophenolate Sodium? Since a dose of Rituximab 2 years ago my surface markers for the “terrorists” T and B Cells have remained low, possibly partly to do with IVMP infusions every 4 months (1g/day for 3 days). My Neuro would like to try me on Myco-S to see if he can reduce the frequency of IVIG (currently monthly) and reduce my daily 7.5mg of prednisone.
      Does anybody use it and if so, is it well tolerated?

      Regards Tim

      I took mycophelate mofetil for a couple of years. The two drugs, although similar, are not interchangeable because the rate of absorption is different.

      Is your prednisone being tapered down? I took mycophenolate with prednisone as the latter was being tapered down, eventually to zero. Then the mycophenolate dosage was reduced periodically. I am now off all meds for my neuropathy.

      I had no problems taking either prednisone or mycophenolate. Your experience may vary.
