  • Limit the exposure to sunlight and UV light by covering your skin with clothing and using a sunscreen with a high protection factor because of the increased risk for skin cancer, when receiving sirolimus.
  • Take sirolimus at the same time in relation to ciclosporin, and consistently with or without food, as its blood levels will be monitored.
