Cyclosporine

Storage Information

Cyclosporine capsules should be stored at room temperature, in their original container. You may notice an odor when you first open the unit container. This is normal, and not a cause for concern. The odor should disappear shortly.
 
Cyclosporine oral solution should be stored in its original container at temperatures below 86°F (30°C), but not in the refrigerator or freezer. The solution may gel or clump if stored at temperatures below 68°F (20°C). If this happens, you may still use the medicine, but allow it to come to room temperature first to reverse the gelling or clumping. Once opened, the oral solution must be used within two months.
 
Cyclosporine injection should be stored at temperatures below 86°F (30°C), away from light.
 
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
