Hello,
I had a kidney transplant 9 weeks ago. My numbers are all good, but I'm sleeping really poorly. Since those numbers are good, my docs don't want to switch meds. In the meantime I need help. Anyone with similar problems and, perhaps, a solution?

It's only been a short while. I would wait a bit and see how things pan out. I did have problems sleeping because of the prograf and ended up taking trazadone to help me sleep. It worked wonders and I eventually got off it.

I had a kidney transplant at the end of March and I'm replying to this @ 12:30 am with work in the morning! aargh! :-) My docs have only recommended an over the counter sleeping aid and stressed using Benedryl since it doesn't have Tylenol. You should consult your docs of course before you try anything new, but I hate to say... nothing seems to help me so far. It's very common for Prograf users in the beginning especially but I can say it DOES get better (slowly, but better). Try a book in your bed as relaxed as possible. It helps me when I follow through with it, but everyone is different. Wishing you the best of luck and sweet dreams. :-)
