I have been taking Cellcept for several years now and lately have not been feeling very well. I have had to do several prednisone tapers. (ICK)!!


I am wondering if anyone else takes this drug and has found it to be less effective after a period of time.

Hi Whirlway,


I also take CellCept and have for about 3-1/2 to 4 years now. I am having some progression despite the CellCept, but my best guess is not that it is becoming any less effective but without it my rate of progression might have been faster. I have to admit I'm not feeling real splendid these days either, but I think I would blame it on having been recently tapered completely off oral prednisone too. I am on an inhaled steroid, but of course that's not going to do much for anything outside the respiratory system.


Will you be seeing your specialist soon? I think I would take a new list of symptoms and when the onset was, if you can remember. I'm one of those daft people who, when asked how long, answers: "Oh, for a long, long time" or "Just recently." My pure favorite is "Quite a while~" :) You could also see your primary care doctor for a general check-up too. As much as we'd like to blame everything on the scleroderma or drug side effects, sometimes it's just something else.


I hope you feel better soon. Have a nice weekend,

No, he was out the day I called. I hate the way I have been feeling, brings back too many bad memories. I see him in June, after I get back from my vacation. Hopefully that will make me feel better. Thanx. ;0)
