  • "How will anti-rejection medications make me feel?"
  • "What are best practices for managing my medications?"
  • "Is there any way to save money on my prescriptions?"

Mastering your meds is key to setting yourself up for long-term success post-transplant. We hope you find this information helpful!

How to Save Money on Your Medications

If you’ve already received your transplant, what’s your advice to transplant recipients on how to manage their meds?

HELPFUL LINKS

I remember my confusion and fear when I was learning to manage my medications for my new organs. I can assure you that it does get easier over time as it becomes a normal part of your new life.

I chose to get my medications thru the Mayo Specialty Pharmacy. They check in with me on a regular basis? They ask me: If I have any questions about my medication; if I am able to follow my prescribed medication schedule or if I would like some help; if I have concern about being able to continue my medications in the future. I am happy I did this (and my insurance does cover it) because my local folks do not know much about my anti-rejection meds.

I like to sort my medications weekly. I also purchased a pretty pill box that I can carry in my purse for special social events! -just for fun:-)
