Mycophenolate Acid

By making the immune system less active, mycophenolate (CellCept®, Myfortic®) can help prevent organ rejection after a kidney, liver, or heart transplant. Mycophenolate belongs to a group of medications known as immunosuppressants. It comes in several forms, including:
 
  • Tablets
  • Capsules
  • Oral liquid suspension
  • Intravenous (IV) injection.
  •  
There are two types of mycophenolate: mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept) and mycophenolate sodium (Myfortic). Mycophenolate sodium is also sometimes called mycophenolic acid. Mycophenolate sodium and mycophenolate mofetil are not interchangeable. Therefore, if you need to switch from one brand or type to another, only do so under the supervision of your healthcare provider.
