Is muscle and joint ache a side effect of myfortin and how long could you take it?
Would being on myfortic make your muscles ache or joints if you have myasthenia gravis How long could you be on it before it is dangerous I am waiting for thymus gland surgery and one 4 myfortin a day and 5 mg of prednisone I would like to cut down on the dosage of the myfortin to l in the AM and l 12 hours later.
Myfortic (Mycophenolate) can cause body/back pain, arthralgia, myalgia, etc. Mycophenolate is widely used for long-term treatment of myasthenic patients because of its presumed effectiveness and relative lack of side effects.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
