MHRA advice on oral tacrolimus

Envarsus is licensed for the prevention of transplant rejection in kidney or liver allograft recipients and the treatment of allograft rejection resistant to other immunosuppressants.

Different formulations of tacrolimus are not interchangeable without careful monitoring. Healthcare professionals should be aware of the different bioavailabilities of the available oral formulations and take care to prescribe and dispense the correct product.
