Used this as a liquid med for about 6 weeks after transplant then developed a rash and vomiting, so stopped it. Patient info and all med info I found about this med said that it has not been studied in the pediatric population. Also can react with other anti rejection meds (Cellcept).

This medication has done just fine for me. I can say that without my health insurance I would not be able to afford this medication. Market price is about 2500-3000 per month. With my prescription drug coverage it is only $25.00 I can say that I am lucky in that regard.
