Kidney Transplant Medications | What I take in A Day
A question I got is how much medication do you take with a kidney transplant? What are my my kidney transplant medications? So with me coming up on my 19th year of a transplant in a couple days, here’s what I take day in and day out. So calcitriol one pill, once a day, cellcept mycophenolate, three pills twice a day, diltiazem, a blood pressure med, one pill, twice a day, losartan, I take one of those at night.
Another blood pressure med tacrolimus prograf, anti rejection meds, I take .5 at night and one mg in the morning hours. Then I take armour thyroid one once a day and then I take generic for uric, I take that about five days a week and then I take a lot of other supplements to keep myself really healthy and functioning where I’m at.
Upon receiving a kidney transplant, a person is given medication to keep their body from rejecting the new kidney. When you get a kidney transplant, your body can tell that the new kidney is foreign and will try to attack the new kidney and attempt to damage or destroy it as a defense mechanism.
