Cyclosporine is available by prescription only. Cyclosporine is an immunosuppressant drug used to treat a variety of immune mediated diseases. Cyclosporine is used to treat autoimmune diseases, especially those related to the blood and skin, such as atopic dermatitis, immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (ITP), and immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA). Cyclosporine works by suppressing the action of certain cells in the immune system, preventing the immune system from attacking healthy cells and tissue.

Cats (6 months or older and weighing 4 lbs. or more), Dogs (6 months or older and weighing 4 lbs. or more)

Benefits:

  • Cyclosporine treats atopic dermatitis, which can come with any of the following symptoms: scratching, licking, chewing, skin infections, hair loss, bad odors, and sleepless nights

How it works
