Myfortic (Mycophenolic Acid)and/or alternatives
Basic Information on Myfortic
Myfortic is used to prevent the body from rejecting a kidney transplant. The immune system tends to reject anything foreign and a new kidney could be acted against by the immune system. The Myfortic drug lowers the immune system of the body. The medication is given along with corticosteroids. It is prescribed for adults and children.
Precautions / Side Effects for Myfortic
Mycophenolic Acid or Myfortic is an immune suppressor. Its function can make the body susceptible to opportunistic infections, which would do little harm to a healthy human being. As a result of this immune system suppression, you are likely to experience frequent cold and fever. It is essential that you minimize your exposure outdoor and avoid crowds. Infections like pneumonia can be fatal in an individual with a compromised immune system. You would be vulnerable to upper respiratory tract infections in particular, so if going out cannot be avoided, ensure that you cover yourself well. However you cannot take any live vaccination when you are on medication.
Side effects produced by Mycophenolic Acid itself include black tarry stools, increased urination and thirst. Increase in potassium levels have been noted in many individuals, resulting in uneven heart rate and muscle weakness. Pancreatitis is another side effect of brand or generic Myfortic tablets. You may also experience vision problems like blurring and problems with speech and coordination. These are serious side effects and should be reported immediately. Pregnant women are not prescribed this immunosuppressant as it lowers immunity and the risk of catching diseases, in both the mother and the unborn baby is very high.
The recommended dosage of brand or generic Myfortic is 1440 mg daily taken in two doses of 720 mg, each taken an hour before meal or two hours after a meal. For pediatrics, the recommended dosage is dependent on body surface. The total dosage should not exceed 1440 mg per day. In older patients, the immune system is less active and hence a dose of 720 mg per day is sufficient. No dose adjustments are required for renal or hepatic impaired. However in individuals with hepatic insufficiency should be closely monitored when taking Myfortic.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
