My Prograf levels went high at one point and the Transplant team lowered my dosage and everything has been fine since then. (I had a single lung transplant 6/23/09)

Thank you for the info....I have been having headaches but I thought it was just all the stress I been under. I wont know anything til my lab results come back but I will keep you posted I really appreciate you sharing this information with me.

Hi, I don't think a "HIGH" level of Prograf level is rejection, they will probably LOWER your prograf level by having you skip a dose and then start back up on the next day.. don't quote me on it but this has happened to me and I ended up in the hospital for having bad headache and they realized that my prograf level was 18 so that's what they did. Your body may have been slow to digest it and it backed up. Hope this helps and keep me posted
