Using Prograf may increase your risk of developing certain types of cancer, especially skin cancer. The risk may be higher in people who are treated over long periods of time with drugs that weaken the immune system. Talk with your doctor about your individual risk. Avoid exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays (sunlamps or tanning beds). Use a sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) and wear protective clothing if you must be out in the sun. To be sure this medication is not causing harmful effects, your blood will need to be tested on a regular basis. Your kidney or liver function may also need to be tested. It is important that you not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor. Your mum's doctor will determine whether it is safer to take the drug (and not reject the liver - she can't live without one) and be watchful for adverse effects or cease the drug and lose the liver. Most people do pretty well and after 12 years seems your mum is one of those that does well. Answered by Armanda Mccorkindale 6 months ago.
Prograf causes severe nerve pain. I'm on Prograf because I had a kidney transplant 3.5 years ago. My hands and feet would burn so bad, it would hurt enough to remind me that I don't wanna be burned with fire. As bad as that is, I imagine fire would be a lot worse.

I'm really not sure, but I doubt that it would be legal to sell your Prograf to anyone. It's a prescription drug that must be ordered by a doctor, so I think that is going to really limit your options for selling it. If you want someone to benefit from it instead of it being destroyed, maybe you could give it to a transplant clinic where they might be able to give it to someone that could use it. I know when I had a drug that I no longer took and it was still all new and packaged, I gave it to the local free clinic. They really appreciated it and gave it to their patients that had no insurance and could really use the help. Since Prograf is used only for transplants, I would think someone at a transplant clinic could use it. Answered by Roscoe Lathan 6 months ago.
Can Prograf cause Tinnadus as a side effect?
I have been taking a very low dosage of Prograf (2mg)ever since my heart transplant and have always had a ringing in my ears when outside sound isnt there. Is it Tinnadus? I've always had it but have just started to really notice it. Anything I can do? Talk to my doctor or.....

Tinnitus is associated with the use of Prograf. There are many other medications that can cause tinnitus, such as Aspirin in high doses, aminoglycoside antibiotics and high doses of loop diuretics like Furosemide. I don't know your other medications, but they should also be reviewed. Several medical conditions are also associated with tinnitus. Let your heart transplant doctor know this. You may need hearing testing and evaluation by an Otolarynologist. Good luck. Answered by Alex Boris 6 months ago.

I am just curious as to what people are taking of Prograf. My dosage changes often. My transplant team says this is normal. I am just curious as to what other people are taking. Mine seems to change according to how much Cellcept I take also. My stomach is very sensitive to the Cellcept. I'm having all sorts of stomach and intestinal problems on it, so they are cutting my dosage down on that. The less Cellcept I take, the higher my Prograf dosage seems to go up. Just curious.. Thanks! Answered by Myrta Gercak 6 months ago.
my brother is a kidney trasplant patient too.. he's taking cellcept and neoral.. i have not heard of prograf. the dosages of the drugs are calculated on how much you weigh.. i think the reason why they advised you to take a higher dose of prograf is to compensate for the lowered dose of your cellcept.

Will lisinopril interfere with prograf organ rejection medication?
im wondering if i can take this with prograf
Asked by Margorie Hind 6 months ago.
They don't interact however they can be detrimental together if you have any kidney impairment so monitoring of your kidney function and electrolytes may need to be done periodically. To the previous poster who mentioned taking one of these meds during pregnancy I hope you were referring to the Prograf because lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor and is contraindicated in pregnancy as it is known to cause fetal death.

No it wont, but it has nothing to do with taking it while being pregnant. Answered by Ivana Refsell 6 months ago.

I think you mean FK, not SK. Prograf has a generic name, FK506. So we usually will get levels to decide how much to dose. Normal levels 10-20, so 26 would require a lower dose. Answered by Ricarda Pillai 6 months ago.

Asked by Margurite Callon 6 months ago.
The drug won't give you cancer. It MIGHT allow a cancer to develop. Talk to your transplant or GI doc. Answered by Harriet Weinmann 6 months ago.
Prograf, a drug commonly known as Tacrolimus, used to suppress patient’s immune system after an organ transplant. The drug lowers the activity of the patient’s immune system and as a result brings down the chances of rejection of the organ. This is because your immune system helps your body fight viruses. It will treat a transplanted organ, such as the liver or the kidney, as an invader and reject the same. Prograf is normally used in modern preparations of medicines to treat conditions such as severe dermatitis or eczema, vitiligo of the skin or refractory uveitis after a bone marrow transplant.

Tacrolimus is used along with other medications to prevent rejection (attack of a transplanted organ by the immune system of a person receiving the organ) in people who have received kidney, liver, or heart transplants. Tacrolimus is in a class of medications called immunosupressants. It works by decreasing the activity of the immune system to prevent it from attacking the transplanted organ. It is also used in a topical preparation in the treatment of atopic dermatitis (eczema), severe refractory uveitis after bone marrow transplants, exacerbations of minimal change disease, and the skin condition vitiligo. IMPORTANT WARNING:-- Tacrolimus should only be given under the supervision of a doctor who is experienced in treating people who have had an organ transplant and in prescribing medications that decrease the activity of the immune system. Tacrolimus decreases the activity of your immune system. This may increase the risk that you will get a serious infection. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately: sore throat; cough; fever; extreme tiredness; flu-like symptoms; warm, red, or painful skin; or other signs of infection. When your immune system is not working normally, there may be a greater risk that you will develop cancer, especially lymphoma (a type of cancer that begins in the cells of the immune system). The longer you take tacrolimus or other medications that decrease the activity of the immune system, and the higher your doses of these medications, the more this risk may increase. If you experience any of the following symptoms of lymphoma, call your doctor immediately: swollen lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin; weight loss; fever; night sweats; excessive tiredness or weakness; cough; trouble breathing; chest pain; or pain, swelling, or fullness in the stomach area.

Ranitidine is available both over the counter and on prescription, so if that's what you have then you can buy some in the pharmacy. But if it's a PPI that you're taking (Omeprazole, Lansoprazole etc.), they're only available on prescription. If I were you, I'd get some Ranitidine or some of the anti-reflux liquids to tide you over for the next few days. Answered by Delma Hassick 6 months ago.
