hi,.....first of all congrats to you and your brother for getting a kidney transplant soon...well, as far as anti rejection tablets or as they are better known as immunosuppressive therapy has to be taken life long...initially they have to be taken at a higher dose which can probably be decreased a bit as time goes and only if the transplanted kidney works well...dont ever think of stopping it or even not taking them for a single dose too....or else you might end up losing your transplanted kidneys.
