For Psoriasis: “I’ve had psoriasis since I was about 4 years old I’m now 53 years old, I’ve tried steroids, tar treatments, uv light treatments, I’ve taken methotrexate for over a year with no improvement, also Acetretin, with no improvement . I have now started on Cyclosporine 150mg twice a day, I’m now into Day 8 and the improvement of my psoriasis is mind blowing, I’m so pleased ,”

For Eczema: “I have suffered with eczema since being 17 and it was manageable. Since having my second child 14 months ago it’s started a a 50 pence peace size on the back of my neck and has now spread all over my neck ears face flares up. I was put on steroids for 10 every two months before I seen the dermatologist and she put on neoral 200mg a day it clears for the first 6 weeks and. Then it’s back with a venagnce big time and am still taking he medication. It it no longer works for me now. I have gone back to steroids today because the flare up is so bad I can’t even leave the house.”

For Psoriasis: “i just started take 200mg a day for about 3 weeks now and it has pretty much cleared up. it’s still in process but there was a huge difference. the only side effect I have had was being constipated which sucks, but would rather have that than psoriasis lol. i took methotrexate for about 2 months but that didn’t help out all. I am very happy I switched to cyclosporine (:”

Neoral (cyclosporine) for Organ Transplant, Rejection Prophylaxis: “I had weight gain once I was use to taking this medicine In talking to other kidney transplant people that are on this medicine they have a weight gain also. My eating habits have not changed. Taking this medicine with water makes my stomach sick.”

Neoral (cyclosporine) for Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura: “After years struggling with acute Eczema, I was prescribed UVB 3 times a week. It worked for a while, then the effectiveness wore off slowly. Years later, after trying several medicines/creams I was prescribed Neoral 300mg/day. Within days I saw a remarkable recovery, within weeks I was mostly cured. The side effects I suffer from are minute compared to the suffering I have endured previously with Eczema. Most days my hands/feet are burning, so hot they feel cold, extreme temperatures, hot/cold seem to make it worse, when I wash my hands, I can’t tell whether the water is ice cold or burning hot. Colds, flu, chest, ear and throat infections make up most of my winters but I still would prefer to take Neoral, than have debilating eczema.”

For Ulcerative Colitis, Active: “Had extremely active colitis, was hospitalized and given IV Cyclosporine as a last resort. Started feeling better within 2 days. Was in hospital for 8 days and feel amazing. That was 5 months ago and still feel great. Slight tingling in hands and feet and extra hair growth but nothing you can’t live with to feel better. Best medicine ever.”
