  • How should I give tacrolimus to my child?

Your child should always take tacrolimus or another immunosuppressant:

  • by mouth 
  • at the same time
  • under the same conditions, whether on an empty stomach or with a meal

These essential precautions help to reduce fluctuations in the level of medicationin the blood. The analysis of the results is therefore more reliable, which makes it easier to adjust the treatment.

However, if blood levels vary too much despite these precautions, doctors suggest that you give your child tacrolimus on an empty stomach within a certain time period before it eats any food.
