    He don’t do much CSA, but do tacro and siro levels whenever our patients need them – no set schedule. Our lab runs them every day until 2pm. Patients have them checked every 2-3 days until stable, then typically twice weekly or whenever they are coming to clinic (could be every other week if they’ve been stable for awhile.

    We have standing orders to draw our Tacro/Cyclosporine levels every Monday and Thursday.  Then, if there is a dose modifiation, we will draw a level after the 3rd dose after any dose modification.

    Hello all,

    We are just wanting to know how often people draw tacro/cyclosporine levels in the BMT population.

    Thanks so much!
