What is Envarsus XR?

Envarsus XR is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Veloxis Pharmaceuticals. It is a calcineurin-inhibitor immunosuppressant indicated for:

  • The prophylaxis of organ rejection in de novo kidney transplant patients post-transplant in combination with other immunosuppressants
  • The prophylaxis of organ rejection in kidney transplant recipients converted from tacrolimus immediate-release formulations in combination with other immunosuppressants

There is an increased risk for developing serious infections, lymphoma, and malignancies with Envarsus XR or other immunosuppressants that may lead to hospitalization or death.

What doses of Envarsus XR are available?

Envarsus XR is available in extended-release tablet form, in the following doses: 0.75 mg, 1 mg, 4 mg.

Take Envarsus XR once daily on an empty stomach at the same time of day, preferably in the morning. Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice or alcohol. African-American patients may need to be titrated to higher dosages to achieve the target tacrolimus concentrations. Patients with severe hepatic impairment may require a lower starting dose. Frequent monitoring of trough concentrations is recommended.

If you miss your dose of Envarsus XR, take it as soon as possible, but no longer than 15 hours after missing your dose. If the time after you miss your dose is more than 15 hours, the missed dose should be skipped and the next dose should be taken the following morning at your normal scheduled time. Do not take 2 doses at the same time.

See the full prescribing information for the complete boxed warning, and read the full medication guide. Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
