Hi Senthil,
Thanks for writing in.
Your father has been told to stop Azoran as this drug can sometimes cause a hypersensitivity pancreatitis. Since his creatinine and blood urea are rising, he may be started on an alternative immunosupressant like rapamycin, tacrolimus, everolimus or sirolimus.
The choice of drug will be determined by the complete profile of your father.
Hope this helps.
