Immunosuppressive therapy is crucial for successful kidney transplantation. Induction, antirejection and maintenance immunosuppressive therapy are basic types of immunosuppressive therapy. Base of maintenance immunosuppressive therapy are corticoids + tacrolimus + mycofenolate mofetil. Short and long-term adverse effects are present. Drug interaction with macrolids and antimycotics are substantial. Cooperation between transplantologist and other specialists are crucial for adequate immunosuppressive therapy actualization. Lack of correlation and communication may lead to irrecoverable damage to transplanted kidney.
