Our expert says:
The side effects of Cyclosporin are as follows: - anorexia, gingival hyperplasia, red and swollen ears, muscle weakness, muscle cramps, insulin resistance skin lesions or change of hair coat – all the changes are transient and resolve once treatment has stopped. Rare side effects also include nephrotoxicity and/or hepatoxicity.
The drug is usually combined with prednisolone and/or ketoconazole. Ketoconazole significantly lowers the dose of the cyclosporine needed to attain effective blood levels.
