What is Cellcept?
Cellcept (mycophenolate) is most often prescribed and used with other medications to help patients who have received a transplant accept and integrate the new organ. It is in the immunosuppressant category of medications, commonly referred to as “anti-rejection” drugs. As the name suggests, an immunosuppressant suppresses the body’s natural immune response to lessen the risk of organ rejection.
Cellcept is taken by pill on an empty stomach twice daily, usually 1 to 2 hours before or after a meal.
Be aware that Cellcept can cause serious birth defects and miscarriage. Women should avoid pregnancy while taking Cellcept, but there is no evidence that paternal use before or after conception is harmful. In addition, Cellcept poses side effect risks that you should discuss with your doctor.

Our professional patient advocates will search all available transplant patient assistance programs to help ensure you receive the best possible price on your Cellcept prescription.
How does Cellcept Work?
Cellcept helps prevent the formation of white blood cells that would otherwise attack transplanted organs and tissues. By targeting the inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase enzyme, Cellcept disrupts the process through which white blood cells multiply.
Because it can help stabilize an overactive immune system, Cellcept also is used to treat various autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues in the body.
Suppressing the immune system is important in order to prevent the rejection of transplanted organs. But it also makes it more difficult for patients to fight off infection, so it’s important to be on the lookout for symptoms that may indicate illness or infection.
