06/05/2018 Has anyone had any experience with cyclosporine? Due to side effects with tacrolimus, my doctors are switching me to this new drug. I've read some of the side effects for cyclosporine on line, but just trying to get a pulse on what some of you may have experienced. Thanks, in advance for any feedback! Melanie

  • I've taken it for about 15 years then changed to tacrolimus.  I didn't notice anything that was a big difference between the two.  Other then the distinct oder cyclosporine has you'll be fine.  It has a different carrying agent (oil) which helps the digestion/ metabolizing process.

    • Thanks so much, Doug! My doctors actually changed their minds & now have me taking a combination of tacrolimus and cellcept. Fifteen years, huh! That's terrific ;)
