    Preliminary: I am classified as a risk patient due to strong allergies (atopic dermatitis and asthma) after I due to intolerance of other preparations (Sandimmune – discontinued after 4 weeks because of excessive numbness in arms and legs) and Myfortic (discontinued after 5 months – because of poor blood values especially creatinine) On CellCept (2x daily 2×500 = 2000 E), I had to deal with the following side effects: Joint pain (especially hocks) occurred after about 2 months Muscular pain (back and shoulder) as before after about 2 months digestive problems (intestinal tract) occurred for the first time after about 6 months. The symptoms were examined (X-ray, colonoscopy and other rapid tests with the internist.) Findings did not arise.The drug was discontinued about a month ago (without substitution) .Something remains mild muscle pain (further decreasing) and now and then joint pain – can not yet judge if it gets better). The digestive problems have disappeared. About 1 week after taking the last tablets, my hair fell out. The process continues in the 5th week.

    Side effects: Hair loss

    Prednisone for Morbus crohn

    For my Crohn’s disease, since October 2008 I have been receiving prednisone intravenously and Remicade as an infusion. I have to go to the hospital for these medications. First, prednisone is injected. Then I have to wait half an hour before I am attached to Remicadeinfusion. The flow time of the infusion is at least 2 hours. Then wait another half hour. So about 4 hours of time currently every 8 weeks. Prednisone: – steroid acne – weight gain – full moon face – diffuse hair loss – susceptibility to infection Side effects Remicade: – fatigue (especially during and shortly after infusion) – susceptibility to infection
