Pediatric kidney transplantation part 52

Children

 

Why is it important  to stick to one brand of medicine

Medications always have two names: the chemical or generic name and the brand name from the manufacturer. The same medications can be produced by different manufacturers. Each brand may have a different strength.

It is important to know the brand name and strength of your child’s medicine and to keep choosing the same brand of drug to make sure you tell your transplant center  if the brand name or strength of the medicine changes, as your child’s blood levels may need to be re-checked.  Your insurance provider may require you to use one brand of medication instead of another. Please let your transplant team center know if your insurance is requiring a change
