Anyone Tried Cyclosporine Drug

Anyone Tried Cyclosporine Drug

Hi there, I have psoriasis and have tried every cream the doctor gave out, then i had a 20 week course of UVB treatment still nothing. I have been back to the dermatologist and i have been given cyclosporine. They have obviously gave me the low down of what they do and what side effects they could deliver. Has any one had these and could let me know how they went on them and any results or comments would be appriciated

Who still enjoys a glass or two of wine, or a beer or two ? Can you have a drink with your Cyclosporine, Methotrexate, bio-logics ?

I have a few beers now & then, but I avoid biologics like the plague. The drug companies profit off their bogus products is obscene!

Is Anyone Taking Cyclosporine?

Is Anyone Taking Cyclosporine?

What Changes In My Psoriasis Should I Expect To See While Taking Ciclosporin?

I have been on Ciclosporin for 9 days and I see slight changes in my psoriasis (severe). I am not sure what results to expect? When I was on methotrexate I think the results were pretty quick. I am being monitored closely.

Mycophenolate

Mycophenolate

Has anyone taken mycophenolate to treat their psoriasis? How long did it take for you to see results? I previously had been on cyclosporine, and had great results, until I came off it. Now my dermo has put me on mycophenolate to see how it goes. 4 weeks in, and no relief so far :(
