Introduction

MMF Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called immunosuppressants. It is used with other medicines to prevent your body from rejecting an organ (such as a kidney, heart or liver) after a transplant. It works by supressing your body’s immune system, so that it does not attack the new organ.

The amount of MMF Tablet you take and how often you take it depends on the type of transplant you have. Follow your doctor’s instructions on this. You should take it on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Swallow it as a whole, do not crush, chew, or break it. Take the medicine regularly to get the maximum benefit and keep taking it even if you feel well. If you stop taking it, you may increase the chances of rejecting your transplanted organ. The treatment will continue for as long as you need it to prevent rejection. 

The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, headache, high blood pressure, and changes in the number of white blood cells. You may catch more infection than usual as medicine suppresses the immune system. There is also an increased risk of developing some cancers for this reason. To reduce your risk of skin cancer, limit your exposure to the sun and use sunscreen. There is a long list of potential side effects with this medicine. You should ask your doctor about them and what signs to look out for because some of them can be serious and need urgent medical attention.

MMF Tablet can cause birth defects and abortion so do not take it if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding. You should talk to your doctor before taking this medicine if you have any signs of infection or if you have any unexpected bruising or bleeding. You should also let your healthcare team know all other medicines you are taking as they may affect, or be affected by, this medicine. You will have regular tests to check for any changes in the number of your blood cells and the amount of sugar and cholesterol in your blood.

વપરાશકર્તા પ્રતિસાદ


વારંવાર પુછવામાં આવતા પ્રશ્નો

Q. Can MMF Tablet cause cancer?

MMF Tablet may increase your chances of certain cancers like skin cancer and lymphoma (cancer of the lymph system). When outside, avoid unnecessary or prolonged exposure to sunlight, wear protective clothing, and apply sunscreen. Call your doctor if you experience a new skin sore or bump, a change in the size or color of a mole, a brown or black skin lesion (sore) with uneven edges or a sore whose one part does not look like the other, skin changes, sores that do not heal. Also, inform the doctor if you experience unexplained fever, tiredness that does not go away, weight loss, or pain or swelling in the neck, groin, or armpits.

Q. Why has my doctor given me MMF Tablet after I have had a kidney transplant?

MMF Tablet is an immunosuppressant. MMF Tablet has been prescribed to you to help your body accept the donor kidney. It does so by working on the cells of your immune system, which fight with any foreign substance and reject its presence. This helps in making the transplanted organ more acceptable to your body.

Q. How long does MMF Tablet take to start working?

MMF Tablet does not start working immediately and may take about 8 to 12 weeks before you see any benefits. To ensure that your condition does not reappear, you may have to keep taking the medicine for several years.

Q. Is MMF Tablet a steroid or chemotherapy medicine? Can it cause hair loss?

MMF Tablet is neither a steroid nor a chemotherapy medicine. It is an immunosuppressant which means that it acts on your immune system to suppress or weaken it so that your body does not reject the donated organ of another person. Hair loss is a common side effect of MMF Tablet.

Q. Do I need any special tests while taking MMF Tablet?

Since MMF Tablet can affect blood count and affect the kidneys and liver, your doctor will ask you to have a blood test before you start the treatment. Once the treatment starts, your doctor will suggest you to take regular blood tests to check for any changes in the blood. These blood tests will help monitor your response to the medicine and the development of any side effects.

Q. My doctor has asked me to stay away from a person who has chicken pox or shingles. Why?

MMF Tablet is an immunosuppressant, which means that it decreases the activity of the immune system. Since your immune system is already weak, if you come in contact with a patient of chicken pox or shingles, you may develop it too. This is the reason that your doctor has advised you to be cautious. Therefore, follow your doctor’s advice and contact your doctor immediately if you get chicken pox or shingles as you may require special treatment.

Q. What precautions should a female follow while taking MMF Tablet?

Do not take MMF Tablet if you are pregnant or are planning a pregnancy. There is a high risk of miscarriage (loss of the pregnancy) during the first 3 months of pregnancy. It may even cause birth defects (problems that are present at birth) in the newborn. Therefore, it is advised that you should use two acceptable forms of birth control together for 4 weeks before you start taking MMF Tablet, during the treatment and for 6 weeks after you stop taking MMF Tablet. It is important to use a second form of birth control along with birth control pills as MMF Tablet may decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills.Your doctor will suggest the two birth control methods which suit you the best.

Q. What precautions should a male follow while taking MMF Tablet?

It is recommended that either the man or her partner should use reliable contraception during treatment and for 90 days after the treatment. Men should not donate semen during the therapy or for 90 days following discontinuation of MMF Tablet.
