    We primarily use Tacrolimus, but occasionally use Cyclosporine. We draw daily levels when receiving continuous infusion Tacrolimus and change to Mon/Thurs & after 3rd dose with dose change when switch to oral. If stable levels outpatient, we decrease frequency to when they are being seen in clinic.

    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!
