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

STILL IN REJECTION

I haven't posted since this started but still in rejection. September 11th, it will be 3 months since this started. It kind of was getting better so doc lowered prednisone to 15mg and let me go a month till next labs. I had those labs August 17th and they went up, a lot. He raised my Prednisone to 40mg for 7 days, 30mg for another 7 days. I am almost done with the 30mg and it will go back to 20mg. I am getting labs again Thursday. I've pretty much been getting labs every two weeks since this started.You can go to my main blog to read the updates to this.http://terri7291.blogspot.com/Current med listPrograf 3mg twice a dayCellcept 500mg twice a dayPrednisone 30mg once a dayMotropolol 25mg once a day (blood pressure)Terri24 Year Liver Transplant SurvivorSee More
