Answer:

Does everyone who gets a new kidney have to take immunosuppressants?

Almost everyone who has a transplant must take these drugs every day as directed. Even missing a single dose may make it more likely for you to have a rejection.

Because of the large number of pills you may need to take each day, forgetting a dose is easy to do. You can do three things to help you remember your medicine:

Use a pill box or organizer. This allows you to set up an entire week of pills. Once the week is set up, all you have to do is take the pills in each on the right day and time.

Does everyone who gets a new kidney have to take immunosuppressants?

Know the name of each drug you take and what it does. If you have a good understanding of your drugs, you will be less likely to forget one.

Take it as soon as you remember and call your doctor. If it is time for the next dose, do not take a double dose.

Even though you are taking your medicines every day, you may still develop rejection of the kidney transplant. You need to know your body very well.
