Example: Making your Medications Work for You after a Renal Transplant / Kidney Transplant
A successful kidney (renal) transplant is not a cure for kidney disease but it does offer the patient enhanced quality and duration of life. It is also more effective than long-term dialysis therapy.
After surgery the transplant recipient will need to take numerous immunosuppressive medications. Post-operative transplant medicines are critical to protect the new organ from being rejected by your immune system. It’s imperative for the patient to adhere to the medication regimen as prescribed in addition to attending their doctor appointments.
The transplant team will closely monitor blood levels to make sure the patient has the right level of transplant medicine. Frequent adjustment to the medication regimen will be made accordingly, which can add to the confusion of a complicated medication schedule.
Many renal transplant patients have difficulty taking the right medications on time everyday. This task can be overwhelming because of the number of pills they have to take and many patients find it difficult to remember the time schedule. In order to maintain the outcome and a healthy life after transplant, patients must adhere to their medication regimen.
3 popular items helps improve post renal transplant patient compliance/medication adherence:
The e-pill CADEX 12 Alarm Medication Reminder and Medical Alert Watch is a great device for active patients looking for a discreet solution. It will remind the patient up to 12 times per day to take medications via audible and visual alarm. Each alarm can be accompanied by a text message (up to 36 characters per alarm) i.e. “Prograf (Tacrolimus), Celcept (Mycophenolate Mofeti), Prednisone” etc. The text will scroll across the watch display when the alarm is sounding, telling the patient meds need to be taken at that specific time.

The pill timer is easy to set; you simply slide the yellow tab(s) on the hour or half-hour (6:00 AM through Midnight) you want it to go off. One slide and your alarms are set. This means you can easily adjust your alarm time schedule on weekends, vacations, etc.
