11/10/2008

Question:

I was on cellcept for 1yr&9 months,and then I was put on Imuran for the last year and 4 months. Can these drugs effect your nerves, I have become nerves lately and wandered if this could be effecting my nerves.

Answer:

You would be more likely to have "nervous" side effects (nervousness, anxiety, insomnia and tremor) with CellCept and than with Imuran. Overall, Imuran has a favorable neurological side effect profile. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
