Were you looking for more information about Cyclosporine? Cyclosporin is a common misspelling of cyclosporine.
Available by prescription only, cyclosporine (Gengraf®, Neoral®, Sandimmune®) is a medication approved for preventing organ rejection after a kidney, liver, or heart transplant. It is also approved for treating certain severe cases of psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Cyclosporine comes in the form of an oral liquid solution, capsules, and an intravenous (IV) injection. It is typically taken once or twice daily; however, your dosage will depend on things like your weight, the reason this drug is being used, and how you respond to the medicine. Although most people tolerate cyclosporine well, side effects may occur and can include tremors, kidney problems, and high blood pressure.
