@gaylea1 I have been following this discussion closely, and am concerned like you and several others are! Can you contact a trusted pharmacist for guidance? Personally speaking, the hepatologist's response was totally inadequate and rude.

I agree with Ginger! Whenever we take anti-rejection meds – I had a heart transplant and take both sirolimus and cellcept – there are pharmacists available to us through either CVS Specialty or from whichever company you obtain your meds. They are available to answer these types of questions. I might suggest you try there and explain your circumstances and symptoms. Ellen

@gingerw what can a pharmacist do? They follow the medical doctor to write prescriptions. A pharmacist is not a qualified physician. My pharmacist is concerned but his hands are tied.
