Taking cyclosporine and cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) due to liver transplant, can I take SUKROL (glutamic acid), my memory and concentration been decreased lately.?

Don't take it. Sukrol is an OTC supplement containing multiple ingredients, including glutamic acid, lecithin, and thiamine. It is impossible to predict whether any of these could have an interaction with your cyclosporine or CellCept (mycophenolate mofetil). Given the potentially dire consequences of an interaction, it is not worth it to take your chances with an unproven supplement. Good luck.

Is safe Prilosec 20 mg a day when taking cyclosporine and cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil)?

Okay with caution. if needed, Prilosec can be used with either or both of those medicines. However, in some instances Prilosec can increase cyclosporine blood levels and or decrease Cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) levels. I would not use it unless I had cleared it with my doctors first, and if you are started on it by your doctor, be sure that your levels are monitored properly. Good luck. Read more...

I am pregnant & due to autoimmune hepatitis & a liver transplant the father is on prograf and cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil). Is the baby at high risk for genetic defect?

No. Both Program and Cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) can reduce or eliminate sperm production, making it harder to conceive (lower sperm numbers = lower chance of pregnancy). There is no information that the sperm contains genetic problems that could cause a birth defect in a baby borne from such sperm. If a defect happens, it is just bad luck, not the drugs' fault. I wish you both great happiness and good health! Read more...
Unknown. there are several factors the baby could have the genetic disposition but unless faced with the right irritates which cause the body to react and form antibodies the chance is slim Always important to follow up with providers over the years but probably will be just fine. Read more...
