Indications & Dosage of Cellcept Oral Suspension
Your doctor will recommend you to buy Cellcept Oral Suspension in order to prevent organ transplant rejection after a recent kidney, liver or any other organ transplant. The medicine works by controlling the immune system, so that it does not start fighting the transplanted organ.
The immune system fights against any foreign objects that enter our body. However, in the case of an organ transplant, we need our body to get adjusted to the foreign object in question. The immune system may identify it as a harmful foreign body and try to force it out by way of severe allergic reactions, inflammation, and a host of other critical and life-threatening illnesses. In such a situation, the immune system needs to be made weaker until the body gets adjusted to the transplanted organ.
The dosage recommended to a patient depends on his or her weight, age and medical condition. Cellcept Oral Suspension 600mg/m2 is given to the patient two times per day.
