I know with me the first year they were testing my tacrolimus very often. Daily the first month it seemed and even now I'm 14 months post i get tested at least once a month. So are they testing you frequently? I had a Heart transplant and they like my levels about 8-10 so how long ago was your transplant and whet is your level. I probably have had my dose changed at least 30-40 times. I know some of the other meds i was on also affect the tacro level.

@danab I am 2 1/2 years post-transplant and still get tested monthly. I think that my transplant center will continue that forever, they are very scrupulous about this. I am fortunate, they allow me to use Quest labs which I believe is a national chain, and there is one just about 5 miles down the road from me. I go at 7:00 in the morning and have the results by that afternoon! The hospital labels my tests as "stat".
