Tacrolimus - Dosage and How to Use

How should Tacrolimus be used?

  • Do not stop taking your medication without checking with your healthcare professional.
  • This medicine should be taken on an empty stomach – either 1 hours before food, or 2 hours after. This is because food can reduce the absorption of this medication into the body.
  • However, you may take it after food if you experience persistent gastric side effects. Take Tacrolimus consistently either with or without food.
  • For capsules: Swallow the capsule whole, do not crush or chew. 
  • For suspension: Shake the suspension before taking.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Then take your next dose at the usual time. Do not take two doses to make up for the missed dose.
