Cellcept headache

Common Questions and Answers about Cellcept headache

cellcept

I was undiagnosed for years and once I was put on Mestinon, my back loosened, my headache went away, and my spine pain/brittleness went away for about 6 months. The Mestinon was not being as effective, and my back problems were returning. My neurologist put me on Cellcept and 40 mg prednisone. After being on the prednisone for 2 weeks, my symptoms started getting better (less spine pain, eye stayed open longer, not as much blurry vision).
bad taste in mouth, aches and pains with muscles and joints, diarrhea, and headache. No fever or nausea. Am I just complaining or should I take more seriously. I had blood drawn today. My next appointment with my transplant team is june 15.
I take CellCept ( 2000m ) an Immuno suppressant every day for my MS. For about a week now I have been sick with some kind of bug or at least I think I have been, Scratchy throat, either running or stuffy nose ( left side), Stuffy left ear, Itching left ear drum, Headaches. These have all been coming and going every day along with a temp that just before taking my CellCept will be around 99.2 - 99.6. After taking my medication my temp drops to my normal 96.6 - 97.4 temp range.
Well gosh that doesn't sound promising!! I was on this great headache medicine (can't remember the name, sorry) and it made my hair fall out in handfuls. I was to the point of trying on my Aunts wigs and thought no way am I ready to wear one so I opted to go off of it and try something else. Interferons seem to be my best option for a DMD since I failed on the Copaxone but I have to say that losing my hair already has me upset. Quix how is your hair now? Can you see your scalp?
Maybe your doctor could try you on an Immunosuppressant like I am on (CellCept). It seems to be keeping my progression of symptoms down by stopping the inflammation from happening. I'm on the CellCept because of my SPMS DX.
Medications Neurontin 800mg 3 x daily Cellcept 500mg 6 x daily Amitriptyline 50mg 1 x daily Prednisone 2mg 1x daily I research every thing I can find in an effort to overcome the effects of this disease. Now I have discovered that Pfizer makers of neurontin are accused of having known that neurontin is ineffective in treating neuropathic pain equal to that of a placebo. However they mislead doctors with false information about neurontin ability to help with neuropathic pain.

I am told I will need to go on a more aggressive form of therapy to try and preserve my lung function. Presently I am on Plaquenil. Cellcept or Immuran have been suggested. My question is how do they know when the time is right to initiate this treatment? How dangerous are these class of drugs? Will I have to be cautious in public? I also had breast cancer with a mastectomy for Stage I, high grade with necrosis, 7 months ago. Thank you.
i have myasthenia gravis would cellcept help my condition
There are some alternatives to Imuran, other immunosuppressants, such as CellCept. There is a test that will determine whether you can take Imuran, and if so, what the optimum dosage is. Until the last couple of years, the test was rarely given; now it's pretty common. Our bodies sometimes take care of their selves, and sometimes they don't do a good job.
They change her immunosuppressant drug for her kidneys from Cellcept to Imuran in hopes that that would help. It didn't Rinse and repeat. Right back up there within 2 weeks. While trying to communicate to the GI doctor that we feel that she isn't being listened to, he leaves the room while I'm mid-sentence. We just stand there dumbfounded. I thought he was joking. Then we find out that he'd found a "...tumor in one ovary and a cyst in the other...
So far I haven't really needed to be concerned about infection as I have been on antibiotics almost constantly since I started the CellCept. Just before I started the CellCept I was bitten by a tick ( in my belly button ) and was put on AB for a week. A week later I saw my PC and she was not happy about the 1 week for the AB and put me on them for another month.
fever, headache, chills, severe muscle pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, rash, cough, lymphadenopathy (?), arthralgia (?), stiff neck, erythema migrains (?), leukopenia (low WBC), thrombocytopenia (low platelet ?),elevated AST, elevated ALT & anemia Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is another possiblity: all of the above except no stiff neck, no erythema migrains, and no leukopenia. (I ended up testing possitive to RMSF) I was a very sick puppy last year.
I find it interesting how different doctors go about prednisone reduction. I started on 60mg at the beginning of Nov 07. 2 weeks in I was reduced to 40mg. 2 weeks after that I was reduced to 30mg. Then after 2 more weeks I went to 20mg. I think at this point I had to go a month on 20mg, then I was reduced to 10mg for 2 weeks. Then I went to 5mg for 2 weeks. Then to 2.5 for 2 weeks and now I've been off for about 9 days. My case of AIH is on the mild side I suppose.
/ I have just the side effects :/ I'm also on immunotherapy for dust from november. Everyday I take 2-3 telfast (antihistamine) and 1 atarax. I'm just waiting when my body will start to fell apart...when my kidneys will not work anymore.
Because a side effect is stated here, it does not mean that all people using this medicine will experience that or any side effect.
I also might have achey muscles, a headache and such for a day or so after the shot. These would likely get less and less as time wore on. What is the worst thing if I don't take a treatment that is proven to help MS at least in a percentage? My disease might march steadily on, and faster than on a med, and I could end up quite permanently crippled earlier in life. The chance of the disease advancing is about 80%.
I'm 70 yo male, hard to believe but....I'm diagnosed with MS, RA, Cluster Headache, and serious COPD. My trip with steroids started with 1 G. IV over 3 days every three months for the MS. Did the IV Solumedrol for 10 years until 4 years ago That didn"t hold me so they put me on 1 G for 1 day monthly. Everything was fine until it destroyed my Immune system....3 Pneumonias in 3 months, 1 hospitalization got a hospital borne colitis (C. Differens) which almost killed me.
My body always ache. Migraine headache for weeks and subsided to just a headache everyday; One day my right eye was hurting so bad I thought it was going to bust out of my head. In the roof of my mouth I have had this bump that keeps busting filled with blood and pus for a year now. I didn't have insurance and couldn't go to the dentist. I have a temporary root canal done since 2004 that now has a big abcess in the hole of my tooth that ruptures.
