Mycophenolate Drug Information

Mycophenolate (CellCept®, Myfortic®) is an immunosuppressant medication that is available as capsules, tablets, an oral liquid suspension, and an intravenous (IV) injection. It is used to help prevent the body from rejecting a transplanted organ.
 
Mycophenolate comes in two forms. Mycophenolate mofetil is approved to prevent organ rejection in people who have received a heart, kidney, or liver transplant, while mycophenolate sodium is only approved to prevent rejection in people who have received a kidney transplant. Both forms are used in combination with other medicines.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with mycophenolate, inform your healthcare provider about any drugs you are taking, including nonprescription products, and any other medical conditions you have. For example, your healthcare provider needs to know if you have a history of cancer, diabetes, or liver disease to make sure this drug is appropriate for your situation.
