Expert advice

• Take precaution while using Cyclosporine as it affects your ability to fight against infection.
• Seek immediate medical attention if you have any signs of active infection like fever, sore throat, in case you have gout or if you are taking any medications for the same or if you need any vaccination.
• Your blood parameters will be monitored regularly for the Cyclosporine content in the blood especially post-transplantation or if you have any liver, kidney diseases or high blood pressure (hypertension).
• Inform your doctor if you have history of fits (epilepsy) or any alcohol-related problems.
