Hi - If you take Belatacept/Nulojix, do you take any other immunosuppressants with it? If so, can you please share what other immunosuppressants you take with Bela and the doses?
What do you take with Bela? : Hi - If you... - Kidney Transplant
What do you take with Bela?
I take tacrolimus .5 in am and .25 in pm.
5 mg prednisone once a day and 540 mg myfortic twice a day.
thank you! Have you experienced elevated cholesterol issues or elevated liver enzymes with with regimen?
I am 4 years post-transplant and switched to Bela 1.5 years ago. I additionally take 5 mg Prednisone once a day and 360 mg Myfortic twice a day. Bela replaced my Tacrolimus meds.
thank you! I was on myfortic (same dose as you) and envarsus prior to being switched to Bela, 5 mg pred, and 2-3 mg/sirolimus. Have you experienced any elevated cholesterol or elevated liver enzymes on your current regimen?
No problem with cholesterol, but I suspect that's because I'm vegan and my lipids have always been great. I do have one liver enzyme that has been slightly elevated, even prior to my transplant, but nothing has changed.
I have been on Bela infusion and 1 mg Sirolimus (Rapamune) 2 tabs daily, sometimes increased depending on lab results. Labs have been pretty stable from the start 20 months ago. Tired a couple days after infusion but otherwise nothing notable. Hope it works out well for you.
thank you Oceansideup
I read a few papers that generally found Bela to be a excellent performer in place of tacrolimus. The initiation usually led to a significant decrease in creatinine. I am glad to hear all of the users here are remaining stable even after a year.
Hi,I take myfortic with Bela.
