Hi....I have been taking 200mg of ciclosporine a day for 16days prescribed for severe eczema...i woke up yesterday with a heavily bloodshot (red) eye & it's worse today. Is this a side effect of the meds and should i be going to a doc, or is it coincidental?....Thanks

when metformin was used for my diabetes my complete metabolic panel was normal but sitagliptin was added and my kidney function started getting abnormal. I stopped taking metformin per my md and 3months later my kidney functions got worse. lactic acid level also went up.

I'm taking cyclosporine and I'm considering taking krill oil, but I am concerned about studies indicating that cyclosporine levels in the body are reduced in people taking anti-oxidants like the substances in krill oil.
I just started treatment for MGN (Kidney disease) taking Cyclosporine and Prednisone. I am having low back pain and was wondering if this pain will go away once my body gets adjusted to meds. Thank you to everyone that responds.
Hi. I'm not on ciclosporine, but my 17 year old son is & he is sleeping about 16/17 hours per day. He is only 2 months into his treatment & is unable to function, because his tiredness is so extreme. He is taking Deximune. Would a change of brand improve things for him? Thanks.
