prograf vs rapamune with psoriasis

stanshar35 posted:
Before my kidney transplant 22 months ago, I had moderate psoriasis lesions on my elbows, face and behind my ears. Immediately upon starting prograf they all disappeared. I have had no other side effects from prograf, either positive or negative. I have recently shown malignant cells in my urine and my nephrologist wants to change from prograf to rapamune. The urologist has examined my bladder via cystoscope and sees no tumor at this time. My creatatine and BUN have elevated but stable. Does anyone have any experience in this regard?
