  • Tacrolimus... I better prepare myself for it!

    I've just been told by some of you and an eye doctor I saw today at the emergency room to stop putting all the medication I've been using as it looked like they had caused a great deal of redness and irritation on my lids. I also developed keratitis punctata, but I'm going to be traveling to Japan in the hopes I can receive good medical treatment there.

    I've been told the don't use cyclosporine and it is likely they'll put me on "Tacrolimus" which I understand not to have been approved by the FDA in the States. I'd like to know what's known about this drug. I've heard many different things.

    Keep in mind that this is a very old thread!

      Anyone know of a doctor in the US who prescribes this? Thanks.
