You should talk to your doctor (surgeon/ nephrologist) or transplant nurse to understand fully: the name and purpose of each medication when to take each medication how to take each medication how long to continue taking each medication principle side effects of each medication what to do if you forget to take a dose when to order more medication so it doesn't run out what to avoid while taking medications At home, you will continue taking most of the medicines that you began taking in the hospital after the transplant surgery, especially the anti-rejection medications. Your immune system recognizes the new organ as foreign and will try to reject it. Therefore, the immune system must be controlled with immunosuppressive medications. You probably will have to take one or more of these drugs for the rest of your life, in addition to Medication Guidelines.
