Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
Cyclosporine is contraindicated in patients hypersensitive to it or any component. It is labeled as being contraindicated in dogs with a history of malignant neoplasia. It should be used with caution in patients with hepatic or renal disease.
In dogs, vomiting, anorexia and diarrhea are most commonly seen; gingival hyperplasia and papillomatosis have been described as well. Cats with high blood levels (1,000 ng/ml) may develop anorexia. While nephrotoxicity and hepatotoxicity are potentially an issue in dogs and cats, it appears that extremely high blood levels (>3,000 ng/ml) are necessary before this is a problem.
Animals who have levels greater than 1,000 ng/ml that persist for weeks or months may be more susceptible to bacterial or fungal infections. Long-term use, particularly in combination with other immunosuppressants (steroids) may predispose the patient to develop neoplastic diseases.
Increased hair growth has been noted in feline patients.
Should not be used in pregnant or lactating animal unless the benefits outweigh the risks.
Keep out of reach of children and animals.
