@hello1234. I assume today's tests include Tacrolimus, BK and CMV viruses. It takes a few days for the results to come. Last week's Tacrolimus was high, so dosage was reduced from 6 and 6 to 6 and 5. My nephro thinks the Cellcept, currently 1 and 1, is too low. However, it's the most I can tolerate. Otherwise, I'll end up again with nasty on and off infections and diarrhea. He mentioned about switching it to Mycofortic. I read it is usually given with Cyclosporine. If that's the case, I smell another adjustment. Hayst 🙁

Good morning @leahdrose 😊 I know several kidney transplant patients, including one that just celebrated his 12 year post kidney transplant anniversary (Yeah!!) 🎉 that are taking Mycofortic so don't be concerned if you are switched. They couldn't tolerate Cellcept either (all for different reasons). I didn't hear that they were also taking Cyclosporine, they didn't mention that drug too. So I am not sure if you need to take both together or not. Please keep me posted on your test results and don't be concerned if they have to switch you from Cellcept. It sounds like they are taking excellent care of you and your new kidney!
Love to you.
…. and please enjoy a very Happy Thanksgiving Holiday!! ❤
