Cyclosporine (Neoral, Bioral,Sandimune, Cylosporine A)
Cyclosporine is used to prevent rejection of a transplanted organ. It is used for long-term (perhaps lifetime) Immunosuppression .
It comes under two formulations- capsules ( 25 , 50 & 100mg) and liquid form(100mg/ml) which is measued by syringe.
If you use liquid cyclosporine, always measure the dose by syringe and not by teaspoon as it is not accurate. Afterwards clean the syringe with a tissue paper .
Do not rinse with water as an oily residue is produced. It is taken by mixing with milk or juice ; and the liquid with which you mix cyclosporine should not be changed and kept the same always.
Use a glass container and not plastic one as the medicine sticks to it , thus reducing your dose. Avoid taking any grapefruit products (including juice) at the same time of day as this medicine, as it can alter the amount of drug .
