How To Use
  • Take Rapamune by mouth once daily, exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
  • The dosage depends on your condition and response to therapy.
  • Learn all preparation and usage instructions in the product package.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about any of the information.
  • Mix the prescribed dose of Rapamune with at least two ounces (1/4 cup, 60 ml) of water or orange juice in a plastic or glass container.

  • Do not use grapefruit juice to dilute Rapamune.
  • Avoid grapefruit juice while using Rapamune unless your doctor specifically instructs you otherwise.

  • Other medications (e.g., antibiotics, other immunosuppressants such as cyclosporine) may be prescribed to prevent infections, and prevent rejection of the transplanted organ.

  • Consult your pharmacist for more information.
