Wow! 1 mg of Tacrolimus every 12 hours, that is the lowest dose I have heard of! Is that because you were such a good match to your donor?

@jolinda I'm not really sure. It was nevered conveyed to me that the match was above average. The surgery was about 9 hours so it was not perfect for sure.They took me off the prednisone and cellcept about 4 months after transplant and lowered my tac to the 1mg. Its been working for me so far!

I too only take 1mg Tacrolimus in the am and pm.

I had a heart Tx 17 years ago. I now take 0.5 mg of tacrolimus twice a day, and 1000 mg of cellcept twice a day. Never have had rejection and no drug side effects.
