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.

Has Anyone Had Heartburn With Siliq Or Cyclosporine? Also Anyone Have Hot Flashes?

I have been having horrible heartburn. Last night thought it could of been a heart attack. Getting hot flashes to and haven't had them for years. I think it is the cyclosporine but pharmacy dont think so. Hot flashes has to do with thyroid which i have been on meds for over 10 years.

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.

Trexall

Trexall

How long does it take to get some relief. I have been on it for 2 months. The 2nd month my Dr. Increased my dosage to 7-2.5 milligram pills per week. The first month was 5 - 2.5 milligram pills per week. I am desperate to feel some relief.

Thanks
