Listed below are the medication given to me following my kidney transplant in July 2015 which I have to take everyday. I take some in the morning and some in the evening.

 

1. Amlodine (Tablet) Morning

 

Amlodine is a calcium channel blocker. It is mainly used for high blood pressure. It is also used to prevent angina (chest pain on exertion).

 

2. Prednisolone (Tablet) Morning

 

Prednisolone is a steroid drug. It is used in a lot od different conditions. Its main job is to settle inflamations. Inflamed areas can be painful, swallon, red, warm and may not work properly.

 

3. Atorvastatin (Tablet) Morning

 

Atorvastatin is a statin. Statins lower cholesterol, which may reduce your risk of having things like a heart attack (primary prevention) or having another one if you have already had one (secondary prevention).

 

4. Lansoprazole (Capsules) Morning

 

Lansoprazole stops the stomach making so much acid. So if you have a stomach ulcer, or bleeding from the stomach , it can help. It can be used to treat stomach ulcersand reflux (when acids go the wrong way up the food pipe and cause heartburn).

 

5. Clopidogrel (Tablets) Morning

 

Clopidgrel is an antiplatelet drug. It makes platelets less sticky. Sticky platelets can bung up blood vessels. Clopidogrel is mainly used to help prevent blood clots, most commonly in people who have a problem with the blood flow in their legs.

Bisopeolol is a beta-blocker. It is mainly used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It is also used to protect the heart after a heart attack.

 

7. Aspirin (Tablets) Morning and Evening

 

Aspirin (75mg), sometimes called baby-asprin, is an anti-platelet drug; it makes them less sticky. It can help prevent stroke or heart attack.

 

8. Tacrolimus (Capsules) Morning and Evening

 

Tacrolimus is an immunosuppressant drug. It is used after transplant surgery to prevent rejection.
