Anti Rejection Drugs

What is Anti Rejection Drugs?

Anti-rejection drugs, which are also called immunosuppressants, are medicines that people who have had organ transplants are given. The way they work is by lowering the immune system so the body doesn’t fight and reject the donated organ. Corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, and antimetabolites are some of the most common kinds. These drugs are necessary to keep the body from rejecting organs, but they can weaken the immune system, making it more likely that someone will get an illness. To find the best mix between benefits and risks, patients must take them exactly as recommended and be checked on a regular basis.
