What is Tacrolimus?
Tacrolimus also sold under the trade name Prograf, Pangraf, Protopic, Tacromus, or Talimus among several other brands is an immunosuppressive drug meaning it suppresses your body’s immune power. The immune system helps your body to guard against invading foreign bodies which can cause infections and illnesses, thereby preventing common or dangerous diseases. The same immune system can be a disadvantage during an organ transplant as it will treat the organ to be implanted as a foreign body and your body will reject it (organ) completely from integrating.
Tacrolimus is used along with other medications to stop your body from rejecting a transplanted heart, liver, or kidney. This medication may also be given for conditions other than that mentioned here.
