The key to maintaining a successful kidney transplant is taking medications consistently and correctly for the rest of your child’s life.
At first, you may feel overwhelmed with the new medications and the information about them. Your transplant team’s goal is to make sure you are familiar with all of the medications your child will be taking before you leave the hospital.
Over time, it will become routine for you and your child to follow the medicine instructions. We want you to become responsible for giving the medications, and we encourage your child to become more involved in taking the medicines as they get older. However, remember that most adolescents continue to require supervision.
