Transplant and Gengraf

A prescription medicine, Gengraf® (cyclosporine) is used to prevent transplant rejection after a kidney, heart, or liver transplant. It is used in combination with other medicines, such as azathioprine (Imuran®) and corticosteroids (such as prednisone). After an organ transplant, a person will need to take antirejection medicine for the rest of their lives. These drugs are usually started just before surgery or immediately afterward.
Gengraf comes in capsule and liquid forms, and is generally taken twice a day. If you are taking this medicine after a transplant, you are likely taking other drugs as well, so be sure to discuss the possibility of drug interactions with your healthcare provider.
