CellCept Overdosage

mycophenolic acid




Full Prescribing Info
Reports of overdoses with mycophenolate mofetil have been received from clinical trials and during postmarketing experience. In many of these cases no adverse events were reported. In those overdose cases in which adverse events were reported, the events fall within the known safety profile of the drug.
It is expected that an overdose of mycophenolate mofetil could possibly result in oversuppression of the immune system and increase susceptibility to infections and bone marrow suppression (see Precautions). If neutropenia develops, dosing with CellCept should be interrupted or the dose reduced (see Precautions).
MPA cannot be removed by haemodialysis. However, at high MPAG plasma concentrations (>100 μg/mL), small amounts of MPAG are removed. Bile acid sequestrants, such as cholestyramine, can remove MPA by increasing excretion of the drug (see Pharmacology: Pharmacokinetics under Actions).
