Anti-Rejection Medications

Organ rejection is dangerous because it can permanently damage your new organ. That is why your transplant team has prescribed anti-rejection medicines as part of your long-term therapy.

Anti-rejection medicines (also called immunosuppressants) help to prevent your body from rejecting your organ transplant by slowing down your immune system. There are a variety of anti-rejection medicines available after an organ transplant, and each works in a different way to suppress the body's immune response.

Your transplant team will determine which medications are right for you. They may change some of the medicines you take or alter the dose, if needed.
