For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: Some side effects...they've been manageable. Keeping a positive attitude and having a support group has been beneficial.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: Prograf seems so far to be a great Immunosuppressive medication . Bad - tremors and anxiety.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: Started taking Prograf in July of 2011 for my heart transplant, except for some slight itching and for a little fluid in my ankles, this drug has worked wonders.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I'm taking Prograf since 2000. Was 7 seven back then, now I'm 19. Still no side effects, just wanted to check if there are any long term side effects.

Review by NM8066:

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I am a grateful liver transplant recipient. 4-11-08. I have been taking Prograf and Myfortic since transplant with very few side effects that I am aware of. I have returned to work 12 months. The only side effect that I have a problem with is sleeping. I am a contractor, and many times it is a manual type of job, so I do need sleep, which I only get 5hrs/night if I am lucky. I feel in time this will take a negative effect on transplant. All liver functions and blood work is good. I go to transplant clinic semi-annually. The hepatologist are opposed to prescribing me any sleep aids.

Review by BINGAMAN:

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Reversal: I have taken this medication for almost 10 years. I am a post liver transplant patient. I have experienced no rejections. Have had minor skin cancers removed several times. My pharmacy now wants me to use the generic, I assume because of the costs. I thank god that this medication has been so successful on me and am very concerned about the generic version. I guess I feel if it'll work. I feel that this is not to be an option I can afford to take.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: My daughter had a liver transplant almost 15 year's ago. After 6 months Prograf was the only mediicine she was taking. Has had NO set backs, no problems. She has given birth to 3 beautiful, smart children with no problems or side effects. Thank God for Prograf. She is on 2mg twice a day.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I take it because I need it. If I did not have a transplant I would not want to take it because I have gained weight and have edema.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I started taking 3mg/day Prograf almost a week ago for my heart transplant. I was on cyclosporin but was having lots of muscle pain and cramps from the cyclosporin. Since starting the Prograg I've been itching non stop. Its apparently one of the side effects. I've also gained some fluid in my legs and hands. Another side effect. I hope the itching goes away soon or I'll have to switch to something else.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I am 4 1/2 years post liver transplant. Take 2mg 2 x daily since initial year. Not aware of any particular side effects. Have had no incidence of rejection as far as I know. Overall, drug appears to do what it is supposed to do, thankfully.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I received my Liver Transplant 4 years ago and started with 6 x 1mg caps/day. It has been reduced to 3 x 1mg tabs/day since then and I have had no episodes of rejection. Prograf seems to do the trick. Love it. I don't know if this is a side effect from taking prograf, but I have gained weight over the course of 4 years.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I have been taking Prograf for 3 years now. When I first got my kidney transplant, I was taking 6mgs a day. Now I'm down to 3mgs a day. I have had no reactions from the drug. I thank God and my brother for the second chance at life.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I have taken Prograf since my liver transplant eight years ago. Very few side effects. Nothing compared to dying with liver disease. Very blessed from the drug and my donor Spencer.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: So far so good. Dosage has been reduced tremendously since my liver transplant 7 months ago. I have had very few side effects and the capsules are small and easy to swallow. I started at 18 caps /day and now down to 3 /day. Be sure to follow your doctors orders and take your medicines on time. I use a Timex Datalink watch and set 2 alarms for each dose to reduce the chance of missing a dose.

For Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: Liver transplant 5 years ago. No rejection. Generally confortable drug. I have experienced small skin cancers easily treated, no problem. I itch from time to time not objectional and I don't blame it on the drug. Generally thankful for this drug. I am careful about infections because of reduced immunity. Thank you.
