Tecrolimus

Were you looking for more information about Tacrolimus? Tecrolimus is a common misspelling of tacrolimus.
 
Available by prescription only, tacrolimus (Prograf®, Protopic®) is a medication approved for treating atopic dermatitis (eczema) and preventing organ rejection after a heart, kidney, or liver transplant. It works by suppressing the immune system, making it less active.
 
Tacrolimus comes in the form of capsules, an intravenous (IV) injection, and an ointment. Your specific dosage will depend on things like your weight, your age, and how you respond to the medicine. Although most people tolerate tacrolimus well, side effects may occur and can include tremors, kidney problems, and headaches.
