Mycofit 500 mg is used to prevent organ rejection in adult and paediatric patients three months of age and older of allogenic kidney, heart, or liver transplants in combination with other immunosuppressants. Rejection happens when the body’s immune system perceives the new organ as a foreign agent and attacks it. Mycophenolate is used with other medicines called cyclosporine and corticosteroids. Both these medicines work together to prevent the rejection of your transplanted organ. The anti-rejection drug has been used safely and works in children who received a kidney transplant as it does in adults. It is unknown whether Mycophenolate is safe and effective in children receiving a heart or liver transplant.
Mycofit tablets should not be crushed. The initial oral dose of the medicine should be given as soon as possible following a heart, kidney, or liver transplant. It is recommended that the medicine be administered with food if necessary. Patients should be advised to take a missed dose as soon as they remember, except if it is closer than two hours to the next scheduled dose; in this case, they should continue to take medicine at the usual times.
