Mon, Oct 7 6:22am · Prograf versus Adoport in Transplants

Thank you to everyone who responded to my question about Prograf versus Adoport. I have now seen my doctors at The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and they have explained the changes in full. I was very pleased to pass on the positive report from Mayo Connect!

Thank you for your response. It is really good to know that Adoport seems to work just as well as Prograf.

I will change to Adoport when I have used up my existing stock of Prograf and I'll be closely monitored with additional blood tests etc

Can I take this time to thank all of you who have taken the time to respond to me today. Your positive responses mean I have no concerns about the change at all.

This is what Mayo Connect is all about and it is wonderful to have links to you all.

My doctors also insisted that I use Prograf and no other brands. It was explained to me that there could be minor differences in brands which would require close monitoring and so it was safer to stick to one brand only. My doctors here have assured us that the changeover will be closely monitored with additional blood tests etc. Thank you for your response.

I have always been on tacrolimus and it has worked well for me but I know others who have switched to cyclosporin. Now that I understand that Adoport is the generic tacrolimus I am more reassured that it should be okay. Thank you for your response.

Thank you so much. Yes, I expect that renal cases would be similar to liver transplant but it is very reassuring to hear from you all. Thank you also for taking the time to send such a detailed reply.

Thank you so much for your prompt reply. It is good to know that your findings echo mine. The few studies I have found here say there are no major differences.

Hello from Scotland everyone!

I have been on Prograf, without any major problems, since my liver transplant five years ago. My hospital, The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, has decided to move all patients from Prograf to Adoport. They have been honest in telling us that the cost benefits are significant for our national Health Service.

I wonder if any of our members have any thoughts/comments/ information on the differences between these two drugs?

Of course, I trust my hospital to make wise choices on my behalf but I am also anxious about changing from a drug which has served me very well since my transplant.

Yes, I also have a pig valve helping my heart to pump so that's an interesting conversation!
