Recently I have been having nose bleeding 2-4 times a week. I take cellcept 2000 mg a day.
Any thing I can do?

Kind regards,

Hi, Kamlesh. I have no personal experience with Cellcept, but from a quick internet search on Cellcept, I see that nosebleeds are a side effect for which you should contact your doctor right away. He or she will be able to give you the best advice on this.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

I think it's a great idea to call your doctor. When I was little I had really bad nosebleeds and I had to have my nose cautherized and that helped. I hope things will settle down for you.
