Mycophenolate Sodium Drug Information

After a kidney transplant, an immunosuppressant medication is usually prescribed in order to prevent the body from rejecting the new kidney. For example, your healthcare provider may prescribe mycophenolate sodium (Myfortic®) for this purpose. This medication comes in the form of an extended-release tablet and is taken twice a day. The most common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, and constipation.
 
It's important to review the safety information on mycophenolate sodium with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. This drug may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have any other medical conditions, such as liver disease, kidney failure, or cancer, or if you are taking any other types of medicine.
