Cyclosporine Drug Information

Drug Information: After the organ transplant, the recipient tries to reject the transplant tissue. But cyclosporine inhibits transplant rejection by inhibiting the host immune system. Cyclosporine is also used to treat autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and some severe skin conditions.

In autoimmune diseases, the immune system mistakenly treats parts of the body as alien. By suppressing the immune system with cyclosporine, it reduces the symptoms of these diseases.

Cyclosporine is also used to treat nephrotic syndrome. In this disease, autoimmune proteins pass through the kidney filter and are excreted in the urine.

 

Contraindications to cyclosporine

  • Pay attention to the expiration date of cyclosporine and do not take it if your medicine has expired.
  • Never give cyclosporine to anyone else, even if you have the same symptoms.
    • Do not take more than the dose prescribed by your doctor for cyclosporine.
  • Check for cyclosporine drug interactions and be sure to tell your doctor what other medications you are taking.

 

Cyclosporine drug interaction

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter medicines and herbal products) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

 

Tips to consider before taking cyclosporine

Some medications can not be prescribed under certain conditions, and some medications may be prescribed if additional treatment is needed. Therefore, it is best for your doctor to know the following before taking cyclosporine:

• If you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

• If you have liver or kidney problems.

• If you have high blood pressure.

• If you have an infection.

• If you have cancer.

• If you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

• If you are taking other medicines. These include all available medicines, whether prescribed or used by your doctor, such as herbal medicines and supplements.

 

Possible side effects of cyclosporine

All drugs, along with their positive effects, can cause unwanted side effects in the body. However, these complications do not occur in all people. If there is a negative change in your health after taking the medicine, it is better to consult your doctor. Many complications may be similar to the symptoms of other illnesses.

Hypersensitivity to infections (such as lung and urinary tract infections): Tell your doctor if you feel bored.

Headache: Ask your doctor to prescribe a suitable painkiller.

Boredom, abdominal pain: Eat simple foods and avoid spicy and high-fat foods.

Diarrhea: Drink plenty of water to replenish lost water.

Fatigue and tremors, swollen gums, high blood pressure, numbness, loss of appetite, muscle aches, and body hair: Consult your doctor if any of these things bother you.

Important Note: Tell your doctor if you feel bored and hear ringing in the ears, headache or neck pain, or vision problems. This rare phenomenon, called intracranial pressure, occurs in some people who take cyclosporine.
