Continued use of Cellcept for Oral Lichen Planus
I have recently returned to University of San Francisco Oral Medicine Clinic. I am still doing well on the Cellcept. I had been very hesitant to take this medication, but you can only take prednisone for so long and it seemed to me that the long term side effects of the prednisone were worse than those of the Cellcept. Presently I have been diagnosed with Osteoporosis. That is considered one of the side effects of Prednisone, though I probably wasn't taking it long enough or often enough to be the contributing factor, since I have other possible causes. I have now started treatment with Boniva and been assured that within a year's time there should be bone replacement.
Always seek the advice and supervision of a qualified licensed medical professional!
