Simplefill helps Americans who are struggling to pay for vital medications they need to take on an ongoing basis, such as anti-rejection drugs. Missing even a couple of doses can be dangerous, but maintaining an uninterrupted supply can be very challenging given the high U.S. cost of prescription medications.

What is Rapamune?
Rapamune (sirolimus) is an immunosuppressant typically used (in conjunction with other drugs) to ward off rejection following a kidney transplant. It weakens the body’s immune system enough so that it doesn’t perceive the new organ as a foreign invader and attack it.
Rapamune is taken in pill form, usually once a day. It may be taken with or without food, but it should be taken the same way every day (always with or always without food).
What does Simplefill Provide?
An organ transplant gives a person a precious opportunity to live a longer, healthier life. But the price they pay for that opportunity is maintaining a daily regimen of Immunosuppressants for the rest of their lives. Simplefill can help ensure that transplant patients never have to worry about maintaining a steady supply of the medications that their lives may depend on.
How Does Rapamune Work?
Rapamune works by inhibiting the activation of certain types of white blood cells, or lymphocytes, specifically T cells and B cells. It does this by making these lymphocytes less sensitive to interleukin-2, a cytokine, “signaling” molecule that regulates the production and activity of both T cells and B cells.
