@alaking, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for posting this question. I am a transplant recipient, and I do not have any experience with the medication Belatacept from my own experience to share with you. On Mayo Connect, patients share their experiences with others who are like them, and I look forward to hearing from somneone who has had an experience related to this medication.

In the meantime, @alaking, I would like to learn a little more about your situation so that I might try to find someone to connect you with. Have your doctors mentioned this medication? Are you being considered for a 2nd transplant? What organ(s) are involved?

I had my second kidney transplant April 5 of last year. I'm having a terrible time with side effects on envarses. Tremors, migraines, exhausted, brain fog muscle weakness so bad I'm not leading a normal life. I heard about this drug from another kidney patient. My kidney has been perfect. I was told since it's my second transplant I can't go on it due to antibody issues but I've never been tested for those antibodies. I can't function like this
