What Is CellCept?

If you had an organ transplant, your healthcare provider may prescribe CellCept® (mycophenolate mofetil). But what is CellCept and how does it work?
CellCept comes as capsules, tablets, an oral liquid suspension, and an intravenous (IV) injection. Your dosage will depend on several factors, such as your age, weight, and other medications you are taking. The capsules, tablets, and liquid are typically taken by mouth twice daily. The injectable form is administered as a slow injection into a vein twice a day.
CellCept works by blocking the action of certain enzymes in the body, making the immune system less active. By suppressing the immune system, CellCept can help prevent transplant rejection. Possible side effects may include pain, swelling, and high blood pressure.
