After Your Transplant

Please see our comprehensive health guide for patients after transplantation to get you started.

Medication

After your transplant, you’ll need to take important transplant medications called immunosuppressants (anti-rejection medications). These medications prevent your body’s immune system from recognizing your transplant as a foreign organ. Without these medications, your immune system may reject your transplant.

To stay healthy, follow the instructions given by your transplant clinic and take your medications as prescribed by the team.

Understanding your medications

Taking your transplant medications as prescribed is extremely important.  You and your caregivers will have a lot of information to learn. To help you navigate this, we’ve developed a website dedicated to providing information you need about your post-transplant medication. You can use this tool from any mobile device to look up medication information and share with those involved in your care.
