  • Hi Russell, I just asked the same question about wbc at the forum. My wbc drops every couple months, doctors give me Neupogen shots and cut down Mycophenolate from 1000mg/day to 500. I occasionally have mild diarrhea too. I had kidney transplant a year ago. I'm having my first year anniversary in a few days. 

    • Thanks Michelle congrats on the anniversary, thats the shot they gave me I guess I will ask more when they change meds.

  • Hi Russell, my WBC had dropped to 1.2  when I was using Myfortic. I am surprised that they changed from cellcept to myfortic since the active ingredient (which is Mycophenolic acid) is still the same in both cellcept and myfortic.  Mycophenolic acid is mainly the cause of low WBC (even Valcyte causes low WBC).The only difference between myfortic and cellcpt is that myfortic is a delayed release mycophenolic acid and they say that its easy on Intestines.

    • Well I am having a lot of diarrhea so mabe that's why they switched me.
