Reviews for Cyclosporine
Review by Merlin123 (taken for 5 to 10 years):
Neoral (cyclosporine) for Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I had weight gain once I was use to taking this medicine In talking to other kidney transplant people that are on this medicine they have a weight gain also. My eating habits have not changed. Taking this medicine with water makes my stomach sick.

Review by Purple3121:
Neoral (cyclosporine) for Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura: After years struggling with acute Eczema, I was prescribed UVB 3 times a week. It worked for a while, then the effectiveness wore off slowly. Years later, after trying several medicines/creams I was prescribed Neoral 300mg/day. Within days I saw a remarkable recovery, within weeks I was mostly cured. The side effects I suffer from are minute compared to the suffering I have endured previously with Eczema. Most days my hands/feet are burning, so hot they feel cold, extreme temperatures, hot/cold seem to make it worse, when I wash my hands, I can't tell whether the water is ice cold or burning hot. Colds, flu, chest, ear and throat infections make up most of my winters but I still would prefer to take Neoral, than have debilating eczema.

Review by Jamy:
For Ulcerative Colitis, Active: Had extremely active colitis, was hospitalized and given IV Cyclosporine as a last resort. Started feeling better within 2 days. Was in hospital for 8 days and feel amazing. That was 5 months ago and still feel great. Slight tingling in hands and feet and extra hair growth but nothing you can't live with to feel better. Best medicine ever.

Review by cyclosporine:
For Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura: I'm a 32 y/o male. Ive been taking cyclosporine for about a week now and its let me keep my own platelets without any transfusions. The only side effects I've had so far is headaches and some abdominal pain. I have an Autoimmune disease called ITP which attacks my platelets.

Review by JeffArender:
Gengraf (cyclosporine) for Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: I am 7 years post Kidney transplant. I have been taking Gengraf and Myfortic for about 4 years. I have had no problems with rejection. I started out taking Cellcept and Neoral but had to change because of my insurance made it too expensive.

Review by Anonymous:
For Ulcerative Colitis, Active: After using steriods for many years that stopped working I was put on cyclosporine. My body reacted well to it and within approximately 3 weeks my symptoms had nearly disappeared. I unfortuntely get some side effects from it such as tiredness and headaches.

Review by kjeffstewart:
Neoral (cyclosporine) for Psoriasis: In the UK after many years in the Middle East, my psoriasis, unnoticeable in the warm climate, returned as heavy scales on my arms, legs and stomach. Prescribed NEORAL I was completely clear after six weeks with no side effects. After 20 months my does was reduced by 25% and within three months my psoriasis had returned although not as heavy. My dosage was changed back two weeks ago, and already there is a marked difference in my skin, hopefully I will be clear again soon!
