If you are about to have a kidney transplant, your healthcare provider may recommend an anti-rejection drug called sirolimus (Rapamune®). This product comes in tablet and liquid form, and is taken once a day. By taking it once a day, you can significantly reduce your risk of the body rejecting the new kidney. The most common side effect of this drug is swelling of the hands, feet, ankles, or legs.
