What is Myfortic?
Myfortic (mycophenolate) is an immunosuppressant drug prescribed for the treatment of Crohn’s disease and certain other autoimmune diseases and to prevent rejection of transplanted organs in adults and children age five and older. It decreases the body’s immune response while eliminating the need for large doses of steroidal drugs.
Because of the potential for miscarriage and birth defects, Myfortic is not prescribed for pregnant women or women planning to become pregnant.
Myfortic is taken by mouth, usually twice daily, and often in combination with other medications.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Organ transplantation is a lifesaver for people suffering from heart, kidney, or liver failure. But transplant patients require lifelong immunosuppressant therapy to prevent rejection of the transplanted organ. Missing doses of an anti-rejection drug like Myfortic can result in graft vs. host disease and loss of the transplanted organ. That’s a fate nobody should experience because they can’t afford essential medications.
Simplefill is committed to making sure that those who need help paying for the Myfortic they rely on can get that help. In short, we provide a bridge between the people who need prescription assistance and the programs and organizations that offer it.
How does Myfortic Work?
The immune system produces white blood cells called T- and B-lymphocytes, which can attack a transplanted organ in the same way that they attack viruses and bacteria. Myfortic decreases the body’s production of these lymphocytes by blocking the action of a compound, inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase, which is needed for their formation. With fewer T- and B- lymphocytes, transplanted organs are less likely to be rejected by the body.
