I haven’t noticed any unusual side effects taking Cellcept. I found it amazing that this drug is used for a variety of health issues. I have been taking 2-300mg tablets, twice a day for almost 6 years, which was soon after my first visits with my Mayo rheumatologist. He is treating a number of GPA (Wegeners) patients with great success. To tell you the truth, between the initial Rutuximab infusions and Cellcept, I am almost a new person than I was even 3 years ago.
Now, this med is not a cure, and I could be in remission, and may be for years. Even 20 years ago people with GPA didn’t live more than 5-10 years. So, this is a miracle treatment to me, because I fall within that 5 year window.
I am not averse to pickles or tonic water (especially mixed with Kettle One, and a twist) that you mentioned that I can recall. That use to be one of my favorite social cocktails. However, I have stopped drinking. I might have a beer once in a great while. The concoction of meds forbids me any alcohol. Believe you me, though, I’ve tried a ton of different “remedies” these past few years. However, I don’t recall these particular ones. Refresh my memory.
I hope I was able to help. Happy Independence Day.
