Complications affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract remain relatively common in transplant recipients. Both tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) cause bloating, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea in a dose-dependent manner, particularly when used in combination [15,16,25]. Some authors have noted that this rather nonspecific GI toxicity occurs more commonly with NeoralĀ® than with SandimmuneĀ® (both from Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, East Hanover, NJ).
