Cellcept Dosage 2g Vs 3g
Posted 03 January 2007 - 01:44 PM
I just met with my Rheumatologist and he wants to up my dose of Cellcept from 2 to 3grams due to my rapid progression. I was wondering, of those who are on cellcept, what dosage are you taking? Is it typical to take 3 grams? For some reason I thought 2 grams was the typical dose, and I am a bit nervous about upping it.
Thanks for the information.

When I was placed on cellcept it was with the intention of going to 3G if my body tolerated cellcept.

I understand that going up to 3 grams seems like a big step. I hope your body tolerates the increased dose well so you can start feeling better soon.

I started at 1.5, then 2 and up to 3 grams, and like Lori, it was only if my body could handle it. My Dr. did say they had not experimented with over 3 grams for sclero treatment.
I weigh 120, if you care to factor that in. I have not had side effects so far...but wonder if there will be problems in the future. Oh well, live for today.
Take it easy,

I'm worried that because my other symptoms have increased, my PFT's will have decreased.
Good question because I have wanted to know how common a 3g dosage is too. I have also noticed that a lot of lupus patients have started on Cellcept.

Yes, I have to have lab work every two months since being on Cellcept. Good luck!!
