Hey Laura,

Cellcept is incredibly expensive as it has a patent on it still by Roche because it's a very new med... There is a med called myfortic, i.e. mychophenolic acid, it was released by Novartis fairly recently and it's incredibly similar to cellcept (mychophenolate mofetil), but supposed to be cheaper...

I've never tried myfortic myself, I have tried cellcept, but my rheumy had talked about it at some point last year I think. Just thought it might be something worth asking your doc about...!

Hope you get to the bottom of this soon! Very frustrating indeed :grouphug2:
