  • Perceived effectiveness for Transplant rejection prevention: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Kidney transplant rejection and organ removal: Slight
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 720 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am having extreme difficulty with this medication. In the middle of 2010, it attacked my uterus giving me so much bleeding and pain I had to have it removed. Doctors say that is not a side effect of this medication, I beg to differ. I still have much trouble with it causing extreme puking and Diarrhea always beginning with these rotten egg burps. My doctors say there is nothing else they can give me. I need to look into other doctors now. No benefits for this medication for me. It impacts my life badly.
Cost: $200+ monthly
Side effects: Sick to my stomach, Diarrhea

  • Perceived effectiveness for Transplant rejection prevention: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 180 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was switched to Myfortic because I was taking cellcelpt and a biopsy showed cellcept colitis, it was aweful. I was taking 1000mg of that twice a day. Now on the myfortic, my Nephrologist started me on a low dose and it turns out that my labs stayed great on that low dose, so now I take 1 tab of 180mg twice a day and I have less pills. I have had no problems with this drug.
Cost: < $25 monthly
