Tacrolimus (Prograf) is a macrolide antibiotic derived from the fungus Streptomyces tsukubaenesis. Tacrolimus is metabolized by CYP3A4; thus, its concentration is affected by drugs that inhibit (calcium channel blockers, antifungal agents, some antibiotics, grapefruit juice) or induce (anticonvulsants, rifampin) this enzyme. Tacrolimus has a narrow therapeutic range and adverse effects are common, particularly at high dose and concentrations, making therapeutic drug monitoring essential.
