Names for Mycophenolate

Mycophenolate is a prescription medication that is available as capsules, tablets, an oral liquid suspension, and an intravenous (IV) injection. It is approved to prevent organ rejection following a heart, kidney, or liver transplant.
 
CellCept® and Myfortic® are the brand names for mycophenolate. Although they both contain mycophenolate, they are not the same medication. Instead, they contain different forms of the same drug. In fact, mycophenolate mofetil is broken down by the body into mycophenolate sodium. Because the body handles these two medicines differently, they are not interchangeable.
