Drug Interactions

Mycophenolate may react with a number of other medicines (see Drug Interactions With Mycophenolate).
 

What If I Take an Overdose?

An overdose could also cause potentially dangerous symptoms, such as low blood cell counts. Seek immediate medical attention if you or someone else may have overdosed on mycophenolate.

What Should I Do If I Forget a Dose?

If you miss your mycophenolate dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, however, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 

How Should Mycophenolate Be Stored?

Mycophenolate should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture. The liquid suspension may be stored in the refrigerator; however, do not allow it to freeze. Throw out any remaining liquid medicine after 60 days. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
