Are there generic versions of transplant medications

Are there generic versions of transplant medications?

There are generic versions of Tacrolimus, Cyclosporine, and MMF that are commonly used today. If the patient is switched from a brand name to a generic version, the transplant center should be notified so they can follow closely along. Cyclosporine has different brand names, including Sandimmune and Gengraf. When possible, a patient should be kept on what they have been taking in the past. MMF is interchangeable with MPA (250 mg of MMF is equivalent to 180 mg of MPA).
