Hope you are all well.
Has anyone on prograf found that the memory is not as good any more and you have to think what you want to say.?
I am 6 and half years post second kidney transplant and find remembering things becomes difficult.Apart from losing lots of hair, dealing with loss of memory is depressing me so much.
I can deal with loss of hair but with difficulty remembering things I can not deal with.
For example, I don't remember if I took my medicine 10 minute ago or not?
Did I wash my hands?
I am so depressed that I can not deal with losing my memories. I don't sleep well at night and it takes me 3-4 hours to fall asleep and then I wake up every 20-30 minutes. Has anyone experienced this?
I have been asking my TX doc to change my prograf and he says now is not a good time to change medicine , He said if he change my prograf then I will have to come to the hospital for test every day and I might have to stay in hospital for some time and at the time of
REISING COVID is not a good idea.
Any feedback or advice will be much appreciated.
I have been taking Prograf for just short of 23 years and never felt like it was affecting my memory. I just received premission to stop Prograf after this many years I was only taking 1/2 Mg per day for the last 3 years. Good luck and good health to you!
I understand how your feeling. I have to search for my words and sometimes forget things. I play some memory games and that helps. Getting sleep helps with the memory too. I also have Addison disease and have been told that can cause me to have memory problems. Keep telling your doctors and see about how your feeling. Good luck
Thank you so much for your kind advice .
I put my daily medications to a medication organizer box.
I also use a pill organizer as I, too, sometimes forget if I took my meds just a few minutes after I took them. The pill organizers are a life saver.
