Adoport side effects

The pattern of undesirable effects associated with immunosuppressive therapy is often difficult to establish because of the underlying pathology and concomitant use of many other drugs.

Most of the undesirable effects listed below are reversible and / or respond to a reduction in dosage. Oral administration appears to be associated with a lower incidence of undesirable effects than intravenous administration. Undesirable effects are presented below in order of decreasing frequency of occurrence: very common (≥1 / 10); frequent (≥ 1/100, <1/10); not very frequent (≥ 1/1000, <1/100); rare (≥ 1/10 000, <1/1000); very rare (<1 / 10, 000), undetermined frequency (can not be estimated from the available data).

Infections and infestations

As with other potent immunosuppressants, patients receiving tacrolimus frequently have an increased risk of infections (viral, bacterial, fungal, protozoal). The evolution of preexisting infectious diseases can be aggravated. Generalized or localized infections can develop.

Cases of BK virus disease and progressive multifocal leukoencephalitis (PML) have been reported in patients treated with immunosuppressants, including tacrolimus.

Benign, malignant and unstated tumors (including cysts and polyps)

Patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy have an increased risk of developing malignant tumors. Both benign and malignant tumors, including EBV-associated lymphoproliferative syndromes and cutaneous cancers, have been described in connection with tacrolimus therapy.

Declaration of suspected undesirable effects

The declaration of undesirable effects suspected after authorization of the drug is important. It allows continuous monitoring of the beneficial / risk ratio of the drug. Healthcare professionals declare any suspected adverse effects via the national system of declaration: National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) and the Network of Regional Pharmacovigilance Centers - Website:
