Hi candan, I have done many hours of research on DM (dermato... ) and have worked for 7 years with my rheumatologist and other doctors, but I have never heard of tacrolimus. If I were you, I would question the dr. and ask for further information about the therapy. I would also get on the internet to try to track it down. Good luck.
