Other medications you are taking, your age, and other medical conditions you have are just a few of the factors your healthcare provider will take into consideration when determining your dose of CellCept. If you cannot swallow the capsules, tablets, or liquid suspension, you may receive this medicine by an intravenous (IV) infusion.
An Introduction to Dosing With CellCeptThe CellCept® (mycophenolate mofetil) dose your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- The reason you are taking the medicine
- Your height and weight (in children)
- Your age
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you are taking.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
