I posted a while back about tansitioning to Everolimus. Well, since my insurance does cover Sirolimus (apparentl some don't) that is the drug my Docs prefer I take instead of Everoliums. I take my first dose of Sirolimus tomorrow. I"ll stay on 720 mg BID Myfortic.
Here's the program:
1. Take all current meds (including Prograf) plus 2mg/day of Sirolimus. Do this for 4-days.
2. On day 5: No more Prograf.
3. Labs 2-weeks from tomorrow.
4. Hope I don't get the mouth sores!
They advise that for 2-weeks I'll be very, very immune suppressed. This becuase I'll still have some Prograf in my system and the Sirolimus will be there, too.
I'll let you know how things go!
