Cellcept And Diarrhea Anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi- I had been on Cellcept 1000 mg. for 2 years with no problem. I then went off and went on again but on 2000 mg. about a year ago. A few weeks ago I started with diarrhea, and am thinking it is the Cellcept. Have any of you experienced this after a period of tolerating it well? Do your doctors keep you on it despite? Thanks.

I'm 3000 g of Cellcept a day and have tolerated it quite well. Diarrhea has never been a problem. There may be something else going on. Have you changed any part of your diet or are you under some unusual stress (other than the stress we all deal with everyday)? Even the smallest change in lifestyle, diet, etc can affect our digestive system. If it continues, please call your doctor! In the meantime, stay hydrated. Diarrhea can take a lot out of you as you know.

I had bowel issues while at 2000mg Cellcept - which quickly went away when moved to 3000 mg. I don't think they were related in my case.


What symptoms lead to your increased dose? Mine was increased because of inflammation at one of my elbows.
