Were you looking for more information about Cyclosporine? Cyclosprine is a common misspelling of cyclosporine.
 
Cyclosporine (Gengraf®, Neoral®, Sandimmune®) is a medication that is available by prescription only and helps prevent the body from rejecting a newly transplanted liver, kidney, or heart. It is also approved for relieving symptoms caused by certain types of psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. This medicine works by suppressing the immune system, making it less active.
 
To help ensure a safe treatment process, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any other medical problems you might have (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or any kind of infection), as well as any other medications, vitamins, or supplements you are taking.
