Hecoria Medication Information

If you have had a liver or kidney transplant, your healthcare provider may prescribe HecoriaTM (tacrolimus) to help prevent transplant rejection. This medicine works by suppressing the immune system to prevent the body from attacking the newly transplanted organ.
 
Hecoria comes as a capsule that is taken twice a day, with 12 hours between each dose. You can take your dose with or without food, but it is important to always take this medication exactly the same way. Some of the potential side effects of the drug include tremors, diarrhea, and high blood pressure.
 
Your healthcare provider will need information on any other medical conditions you may have before starting treatment with Hecoria, as this medication can cause potentially serious and even life-threatening complications in some people. There are also many drug interactions that can occur with Hecoria, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware of all other medicines, vitamins, and supplements you are taking.
