Organ transplant is the process of surgically removing an organ or tissue from one person (the organ donor) and placing it into another person (the recipient). Transplantation may be necessary because a recipient’s organ has failed or has been damaged by disease or injury.
While organ transplantation is one of the great advances in modern medicine and it can greatly improve a patient’s health and well-being, it can be stressful and straining. At Kings Pharmacy, we offer medications that ensure a transplant is accepted by the body. We also serve as a support system to help and guide you through process of recovering after a transplant.
Medications used by transplant patients may include:
- Tacrolimus (Prograf)
- Cyclosporine (Neoral, Gengraf, Sandimmune)
- Methylprednisolone (Medrol, Prednisone)
- Mycophenolate (CellCept, Myfortic)
- Sirolimus (Rapamune)
- Azathioprine (Imuran)
Please speak to your doctor to see which medications are right for you.
