Full Prescribing Info
Transplantation: Organ transplantation: Prevention of rejection of kidney, liver, heart, combined heart-lung, lung and pancreas allografts.
Treatment of transplant rejection in patients previously treated with other immunosuppressive agents.
Because of the risk of anaphylaxis (see Precautions), Sandimmun should only be given to patients as an i.v. infusion when oral ingestion is not feasible (e.g. in the immediate post-operative period) or where gastrointestinal absorption is impaired. Such patients should be switched to oral therapy with Sandimmun Neoral as soon as possible.
