My mom is a kidney transplant patient. Just 1 week ago, before she got discharged. Her medicines are going on, so I want to ask because my mom has not taken her medicine name Valgan 450 mg, since 1 week. So is there a chance to get any infections or something?

Valganciclovir (Valgan or Valcyte) is used to prevent viral infections in patients just recently transplanted.  This is a standard drug to be used in early kidney transplant and is very important to keep the kidney safe and prevent serious infections.
