Description

Cyclosporine is a prescription medication given to treat atopy (allergies to airborne substances) and immune diseases, especially those affecting the blood or skin. It works by suppressing the action of certain cells in the immune system. Plus, it comes in a capsule form, so it's easy to disguise in your pet's favorite food.

Uses

Cyclosporin is used to decrease the immune system's response to a transplanted organ, and is also used for arthritis and psoriasis.

Possible Side Effects

Gastrointestinal side effects like vomiting, diarrhea and lack of appetite have been reported. Other less-common side effects may include muscle cramps, muscle weakness and change in hair. Alert your vet if you notice signs, such as facial swelling, difficulty breathing, hives, scratching, vomiting, diarrhea and pale gums, as these may be symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your vet about any other drugs the pet is taking before starting Cyclosporine.

Precautions

Hypertension medications may be required in recipients of kidney, liver and heart transplants treated with Cyclosporine. However, since Cyclosporine may cause high potassium levels, potassium-sparing diuretics should not be used. While calcium inhibitors can be effective agents in treating Cyclosporine-associated hypertension, they can interfere with Cyclosporine.

FAQ

How does this medication work?

Cyclosporine works to target cells in the immune system that are responsible for allergic reactions and some other immune system abnormalities.

What results can I expect?

Results are usually not observed immediately and it can take several weeks to see improvement. Never stop medication abruptly or skip doses unless your veterinarian instructs you to or symptoms can recur or worsen. Your veterinarian may reduce your pets dose over time based on his/her response to treatment. Your pet's symptoms should improve over time.

    I have been getting my dog’s cyclosporine from the veterinary college for over a yr and suddenly this pandemic caused a shortage of Atopica and eventually the replacement, cyclosporine.and the college cannot get it anymore!

    Pharmacy was very difficult to use

    By on

    I ordered two medications for two of my dogs. The pharmacy denied both initially. They then approved this one, but still denied the other one despite my Vet approving it. I am not sure I will use this department again even though their price is cheaper than my Vet. Wasn't worth the hassle I had.

    An Important solution

    By on

    this drug was recommended and prescribed for my wheaten terrier who is being treated for allergy issues. It was faster and less expensive to fill this prescription with Chewy and I will be filling all of her prescriptions this way. Chewy makes it easy and fast and a little easier on the old pocketbook.

    Severe side effects possible, very expensive medication.

    By on

    First of all, this is very expensive medication. Chewy had the best price I could find anywhere, so not their fault. Within 2 days our poor pup had diarrhea, vomiting, and was moving from room to room first sitting, then laying down, then getting up as though in great discomfort. So, unfortunately, a big waste of money and caused our little guy so much discomfort. He was fine after discontinuing the medication.

    Amazing Results

    By on

    Murphy is close to being 15 years of age. He has an auto-immune disease. I was in dispair of his ever recovering. BUT due to this medicine, Cyclosporine, he is well on his way to being the energetic Collie he was before the onset of his disease. I cannot say enough good things about the Generic Cyclosporoing.
