Uses
Prograf (Tacrolimus) belongs to a group of medicines called immunosuppressants, which work by lowering the immune system. Patients who have undergone an organ transplant are given this medicine, to prevent the immune system from treating the newly transplanted organ as an invader and attacking it. By suppressing the activity of the immune system, this medicine allows the body to accept the newly transplanted heart, liver or kidney.

Dosage and Administration
Prograf (Tacrolimus) capsules each contain 1mg of the active ingredient. Adults are usually given this medicine under close medical supervision. Generally speaking, patients are told to take it twice per day, with one dose taken every 12 hours. This medicine is only effective at preventing the rejection of an organ transplant if it is continuously taken, as directed by your doctor. Do not stop taking it without consulting your doctor.

Patients taking Prograf (Tacrolimus) capsules to prevent the rejection of an organ transplant may experience side effects, such as:

  • Insomnia
  • Appetite loss
  • Uncontrolled shaking
  • Pain affecting the back, joints or stomach
  • A burning or tingling sensation affecting the feet or hands

Notify your doctor if any side effects occur. Some patients may experience severe reactions which require medical attention, however, this is considered to be rare.
