Ensure Transplant Patients Get the Right Tacrolimus Product

You'll hear about mix-ups with the transplant med tacrolimus...now that Health Canada is receiving more reports of errors.

Tacrolimus is the backbone of many immunosuppressant regimens and comes in three oral forms...immediate-release caps (Prograf), extended-release caps (Advagraf), and prolonged-release tabs (Envarsus PA).

Switching between forms without dose adjustments or monitoring may increase risk of organ rejection and adverse reactions...hypertension, nephrotoxicity, tremor, etc.
