My kidney transplant happened just now on 18th August in India. My steroids & immunosuppressants are as follows: Steroid- Predinisolone, Immunosuppressants: 1) Pangraph 2) Myfortic. One more for virus- Valstead. For Pangraph adjustment they are doing regular Tacrolimus level test, but for Myfortic, no such test is being done. Should there be a test for Myfortic also?

Testing for levels of Myfortic (mycophenolic acid) can be done but are not helpful in treating patients with kidney transplants.  I suggest that you continue to follow with your transplant physicians.  It sounds like you are being treated properly.
