Thu, Apr 11 6:31am · Multivitamins Post Liver transplant in Transplants

it's safe to take a multi-vitamin after transplant, as far as which one just make sure you do your research on the product company. As far as the Vit.C, it has a multitude of benefits, and many functions in the body. You couldn't take enough Vit. C to counter the effects of your anti-rejection medicine, it works in a different way. Hope that helps.

I am 4yrs. post transplant, my level runs between 8 and 9. It changed when they changed from prograff, to Tac. which is the generic, which absorbs slightly different. I get my labs checked every month, but we are all different and our bodies act differently, plus like you said different meds. can have different effects, on the other. Hope that your heart is doing well…blessings

I am always talking to doctors, and nurses. We need to have a synced, or what ever the best word would be. A doctor should be able, to put in my information, name, birth date, etc., and get all my medical information.
