Cellcept causing miscarriage - Liver transplant

Good day

My wife had a liver transplant 4 years ago. She is currently on Cellcept (1000mg/day) and prograf and clexane.

We are trying to become pregnant, but she has had two miscairrages in the past 5 months.

The docters say it is because of the cellcept and I saw on the FDA that this drug should be avoided when trying to conceive.

My question is: Is there no other drug that can be used?

cellcept should be avoided.  prograf monotherapy can often be used so possibly just stopping the cellcept is an option.
