In brief: In most instances,

a transplant recipient will be on tacrolimus (Prograf) as long as the transplanted organ continues to function.
However, if adverse effects of the drug may lead to switching the drug with another class of agent.

In brief: Variable

No one answer. While tacrolimus is the most frequently use immunosuppressive drug in the us, it may be substituted or discontinued depending on the circumstances.
You should discuss it with your transplant team.
