The normal reference range for Prograf is 4 - 16 ng/ml. This is so individual that it is hard to know what level is right for anyone without a lot of experience. I think 6.5 is nothing to worry about. I might ask his coordinator if she thinks the gap between this Prograf level and his previous level looks alright. I wonder whether his Prograf dose was the same for both labs and, if so, whether the lab time was different or if there was some other factor present. For instance, if he had diarrhea the evening before his labs that could account for the lower Prograf level. I think 2 mg Prograf per day at 6 months out is a really nice dose and his Prograf blood level of 6.5 is definitely within range. Good luck, Mike

I had kidney transplant 2004 my prgraf level is suppose to run  between 6-8
I can tell when it gets to high by the way I feel. I had open heart surgery 10-09 have a mechanical valve and take coumadin, That is causing trouble with my prograf  levels going up and down
Thank goodness I have such good Physcians and they keep up with the dosage changes.
Good luck,
