Were you looking for more information about Tacrolimus? Tacrolemis is a common misspelling of tacrolimus.
If you have a kidney, liver, or heart transplant, your healthcare provider may prescribe tacrolimus (Prograf®, Protopic®) to help prevent your body from rejecting the newly transplanted organ. This medicine is also approved to treat moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (eczema).
It comes as capsules, intravenous (IV) injections, and an ointment, and works by suppressing the immune system. Possible side effects may include headaches, tremors, and kidney problems.
