The pharmacist will review the patient’s current medications and make suggestions to the MD. Then for post-transplant care, you will require a daily program of immunosuppressive drug therapy. The pharmacist is an authority on these medications, and can answer questions about the doctor’s instructions for taking them. The patient should never change the dosage schedule unless specifically told to do so by the doctor or transplant coordinator.
Additionally, our pharmacy liaison can help patients to reduce the cost of prescriptions, and help with delivery and coordination of medications.
