Hello, I am 12 years post transplant and I was taken off tacrolimus about 5 years ago and placed on sirolmus. My transplant was done at Baylor Dallas. They claimed that the tacrolimus was more renal toxic. I have done great on sirolimus and last year I was taken off of Myfortic as well and still doing fabulous and feeling so much better with more energy, etc. I take only 1mg Sirolimus every other day and liver enzymes have not changed. Life is good.

@annmariaa wow, only 1 mg every day! That’s great. I take 2.5 daily. As I mentioned in a previous post the tacrolimis was causing my creatinine to go high. It’s very good now.

I just finished my 1year 3 day checkup with biopsy after a kidney transplant at Mayo Rochester. I take 750. Cellcept and 2.5 mg of Tacrolimus and 5 mg of Prednizone daily. I got a clean bill of health with no changes to meds. Yay! My only complaint is arthritis especially in my hands and nothing but Tylenol to take for it. Actually I realize how blessed i am that, that is the only thing I have to whine about. 💕
