Myfortic

Recommended Posts

I discovered through The Lupus Site that there is a similar drug to Cellcept called Myfortic.

 

Has anyone else heard of this drug? What do you know about it? I called my pharmacy to compare price to Cellcept and it is actually more expensive (before insurance) But I was curious if my insurance would pay for more of it than it does for my Cellcept?

 

Some on the Lupus Site said they thought it was a generic form of Cellcept but I don't think so. All I've been told is that there is no generic Cellcept yet.

Barefut,

I found this on drugs.com on our medications page.

 

Mycophenolate Mofetil (cellcept) / Mycophenolic Acid (myfortic)

http://www.drugs.com/ppa/mycophenolate-mof...nolic-acid.html

 

They are two different forms of mycophenolate. From what I found myfortic only comes as a delayed-released tablet.

 

Interesting - this is the first time I've heard of it.

 

Big Hugs,
