Uses:
Mycophenolate is used in combination with other medications to keep your body from attacking and rejecting your transplanted organ (e.g., kidney, liver, heart). It belongs to a class of medications called immunosuppressants. This medication works by lowering your body's immune system activity.

Side Effects:

See also Warnings section. Constipation, nausea, headache, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach upset, loss of appetite, gas, tremor, trouble sleeping, or redness/swelling at the injection site may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Because this medication weakens your immune system, you are more likely to develop infections which may be serious.

Tell your doctor immediately if you develop any of the following signs of infection:

Persistent sore throat/fever, night sweats, flu-like symptoms, painful urination, vision changes, a sore or wound on the skin that feels warm/tender/painful and appears reddened. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: unusual tiredness, irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness, easy bleeding/bruising, swelling of the feet or ankles, mental/mood changes, weakness on one side of the body.

Seek immediate medical attention if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur:

Chest pain, stomach/abdominal pain, black/tarry stools, vomit that looks like coffee grounds, shortness of breath. A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice any other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

Precautions:
Before taking mycophenolate mofetil, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to mycophenolic acid, mycophenolate sodium, or polysorbate 80; or if you have any other allergies.

Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of:

A any type of cancer, kidney disease, liver disease, stomach/intestinal problems (e.g., ulcers), rare genetic disorders (e.g., Lesch-Nyhan or Kelley-Seegmiller syndromes).

If you had a kidney transplant and the new kidney does not work properly even though you are taking this medication, the amount of mycophenolate in your body may increase, which can result in increased side effects.

This drug may make you dizzy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery. Limit alcoholic beverages. Mycophenolate may cause swelling and growth of the gums (gingival hyperplasia). Brush and floss your teeth daily, and see your dentist regularly. Because this medication may increase your risk of developing skin cancers, it is best to avoid prolonged sun exposure, tanning booths and sunlamps while you are using this medication. Use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.

Do not have immunizations/vaccinations without the consent of your doctor, and avoid contact with people who have recently received oral polio vaccine. Avoid contact with people who have the flu or any other infection. Notify your doctor if you are scheduled for any kind of test or surgery involving your colon (e.g., colonoscopy, abdominal surgery) that requires cleaning out your colon before the procedure.

Removing the bacteria in your digestive tract can decrease the amount of mycophenolate in your body. Caution is advised when using this drug in the elderly because they are less able to remove this drug from their bodies, and therefore may be more sensitive to its effects. This medication is not recommended for use during pregnancy because of possible harm to your baby. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Women of childbearing age should have a negative pregnancy test within 1 week of starting this medication. Also, use two reliable forms of birth control starting 4 weeks before beginning therapy, and continue for at least 6 weeks after mycophenolate is stopped. Consult your doctor for more details. It is not known whether this drug passes into breast milk, but it may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Therefore, breast-feeding is not recommended while using this drug and for 6 weeks after stopping mycophenolate. If you must take the drug while you are producing milk, but wish to resume breast-feeding six weeks after treatment is finished, pump your breast milk and discard. Consult your doctor for more details.

Drug Interactions:
Your healthcare professionals (e.g., doctor or pharmacist) may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for it. Do not start, stop or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first.

This drug should not be used with the following medications because very serious interactions may occur:

A azathioprine, cholestyramine, colestipol, live vaccines, natalizumab. If you are currently using any of these medications listed above, tell your doctor or pharmacist before starting mycophenolate.

Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use, especially of: antivirals (e.g., acyclovir, ganciclovir, valganciclovir), rifampin. This medication may decrease the effectiveness of combination-type birth control pills by decreasing the amount of certain hormones in your system (impaired enterohepatic recirculation or hepatic induction). This can result in pregnancy. You may need to use an additional form of reliable birth control while using this medication. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. This document does not contain all possible interactions. Therefore, before using this product, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the products you use.

Seek immediate medical attention if they occur. Avoid inhaling the powder, and avoid direct contact of the dry powder or the prepared liquid with the skin or mucus membranes.
