  • Hi Cora, My team and GP say that it is just in relation to the drugs. I have tried acupuncture but everyone that I have seen have wanted me to also take chinese herbal meds along with the acupuncture which of course I say no to because of Tx and then they say they can't help me. It is very frustrating. What is Tacro I have not heard of that. I think so of the drugs have different names down here in New Zealand. Does it have another name???

  • Hi Rhonda. I didn't get headaches with either tac or cellcept, but with the tacro, I had severe problems sleeping. I took trazadone for about a year, but then was fine. Not sure what will help with the migraines. What does your team say? Any help there? I've also had help with accupuncture when it came to other stuff. maybe some relief with that? Best of luck and welcome.

  • Thanks for all the warm welcomes. I do have a question for all of you on Tac, cellcept, and prednisone. Does anyone get migraines with these meds. I am getting them weekly.

  • Greetings and Welcome to Transplants Friends, Rhonda. And try to join us in the chat room Saturdays and Sundays at 3 pm EST / 12pm PST. Take care.

  • Hi Rhonda

    Welcome to Transplant Friends! Stay Well.

  • Hi Rhonda

    Welcome to Transplant Friends! So glad that you found us.  Glad to provide you with some insights what it is like to live life with a kidney/pancreas. Contact Cora from this group she will probably be able to answer some of your questions.
