I need to say something so that i am sure everyone understands. A lot of you have been asking questions about medications and dosages. We can only answer your questions from our point of view and from our experience. Everything, whether it's medications, dose of these medications, drinking wine, your diet, etc. - it all has to be approved by your nephrologist. None of us are experts. The nephrologist is the kidney expert and with you can help make the appropriate decision to keep you healthy. The one thing I have learned the 8 years before my transplant and the 18 years post transplant is that our kidneys are very complex organs. What works for one, won't work for another.
Ok, I am off my soapbox. Take care!
