    Expert advice for Mycophenolate mofetil

    • Your doctor has prescribed Mycophenolate mofetil to stop your body from rejecting a transplanted organ (e.g. kidney, heart or liver). 
    • It may take 6 to 12 weeks for Mycophenolate mofetil to start working. Keep taking it as prescribed.
    • Take it with food to minimize possible side effects like nausea and stomach pain.
    • It makes you more susceptible to getting infections. Avoid contact with people who have an infection. Consult your doctor immediately if you develop a sore throat, high temperature, any other signs of infections.

    • Protect yourself from direct sunlight by wearing protective clothing and applying a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF).
