A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Prograf is a prescription medication used to prevent organ transplant rejection when a person has had a kidney, heart, liver, or lung transplant. Tacrolimus is an immunosuppressant drug that weakens the immune system so that the body is more likely to accept the new organ. Dose and treatment duration will depend on many factors and at the doctor’s discretion. Once patients are moved off Prograf after successful organ transplant the full strength of their immune system begins to return. Buy Prograf from Canada and Canpharm and get the best price on it.
Take Prograf medication and the dosage and frequency indicated in your prescription. Standard guidelines are to take your capsule(s) every 12 hours. Swallow whole with water and try to take it at the same time every day
Patients with nausea or upset stomach should take Prograf capsules with food and you will need to choose one way or the other. It is important to take Prograf in the same way (with food / without food) every time so that you are absorbing the levels of the immunosuppressant drug evenly all through your treatment.
The active ingredient in Prograf is Tacrolimus.
