  • Thanx Kim to share ur experience with me.This will guide me a lot.I'll increase my prograf 0.5 mg frm tonight. Means 3 mg twice daily. Will do my next level test after a week. Take care---
  • Hello Kim.
    How r u doing ? I've 3 months of my post transplant. Day before yesterday i did my prograf( tacrolimus) level. I m bit worried bcas it's 4. others report r normal. My doctor suggest me to do the test again without increasing dose of prograf. I've a question to u. Is it alerming to keep the prograf level 4 for a long time. U know here in our country doctors r not so experienced like your doctors. After that i'll take my doc suggestion but want to know your experience too. Take care------
