Mycodapt™-S (Mycophenolate Sodium delayed release tablet) is a prescription medicine given to prevent rejection in people who have received a kidney transplant. Rejection is when the kidney recipient’s immune system senses the transplanted kidney(organ) as “foreign” and attacks it. Mycodapt™-S is usually given to kidney transplant recipients along with other immunosuppressants like Cyclosporine or Tacrolimus and corticosteroids. There are numerous papers published on the usage of Mycophenolate in many other ailments like Lupus and Nephrotic Syndrome either alone or in combination of other medication. However, its such usage is totally dependent on the expertise and experience of the treating health care practitioner.
