The information on this product's packaging is Turkish language only.

Uses
Prograf (Tacrolimus) is used to prevent the immune system for fighting and ultimately rejecting an organ (such as a liver, kidney or heart) that has been transplanted. This can occur because the immune system may treat the new organ as an invader. Taking this medication reduces the action of the immune system. It achieves this by preventing certain substances called lymphokines from being produced. As these substances help to stimulate the production of the white blood cells involved in an immune response, blocking their production decreases the activity of the immune system and helps the body to accept the new organ.

Dosage and Administration
Prograf (Tacrolimus) comes as 5mg capsules. While you are taking this medication, you will be closely monitored. Strictly adhere to all instructions given to you by your doctor. Adults are usually told to take it every 12 hours. It is necessary to continue taking this drug for it to be effective. Do not stop taking this medication unless your doctor tells you to do so. While you are taking this medication, regular blood and urine tests will be ordered by your doctor, to ensure that this medication is not causing serious side effects.
