Advice & Tips: At first, when you come home from the hospital you have really vivid bad nightmares. Probably a combination of predisone and neoral and rapamune and all the other drugs i take. And of course UNWANTED HAIR ESPECIALLY ON THE FACE I almost stopped taking my meds because of this I sorry just care how I look. I'm so glad i kept taking this med otherwise I would probably be dead, dialysis was really hard on me. I actually quit in the middle of treatment. I had enough I was going to just die. That night the kidney transplant team called me they had a matching donor. I still had not received my pager yet. God works in magical ways. I would be dead if it wasnt for that call. So what's some hair on the face. You just spend alot of money on waxing.
Cost: $200+ monthly
Side effects: hair growth increased
