I had a kidney/liver transplant 2 years ago. I am taking 4 mg of prograf daily. I am experiencing some weight gain and wonder if any one else is experiencing this same effect. I have gained 35 pounds in 2 years. I know part of this is just being more healthy as I was malnourished before the transplant. However, now that I am healthy, the pounds seem to be steadily be creeping up in spite of watching what I eat. I am also having a slightly elevated chloresterol level and wonder if anyone else is experiencing this..
Increased appetite (which could lead to weight gain) and raised cholesterol levels are known side effects of tacrolimus.

Is there a program or way to get prograf when you have no insurance, and are unable to buy the medi?
