Prograf Immunosuppressant

A healthcare provider may prescribe Prograf® (tacrolimus) to prevent organ rejection in people who have received a liver, kidney, or heart transplant. It is used in combination with other medications.
 
Belonging to a group of drugs known as immunosuppressants, Prograf works by suppressing the immune system and making it less active. When the immune system is less active, it is less likely to attack foreign material, such as a new organ. As a result, Prograf can help to prevent the body from rejecting the newly transplanted organ.
 
Prograf comes in the form of a capsule and an injection. Your dose will depend on several factors, including your weight, age, and other medications you are taking.
