Product Info
What is Cyclosporine (Modified) Generic To Atopica?

Cyclosporine (Modified) capsules, a generic to Atopica, are used for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in dogs, which is a non-contagious skin disease characterized by chronic inflammation of the skin. While its not approved by the FDA for cats, it is commonly prescribed by veterinarians to treat cats. Cyclosporine requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats (6 months or older and weighing 4 lbs. or more), Dogs (6 months or older and weighing 4 lbs. or more)

Benefits:
  • Cyclosporine treats atopic dermatitis, which can come with any of the following symptoms: scratching, licking, chewing, skin infections, hair loss, bad odors, and sleepless nights
  • Safe and more affordable alternative to steroid shots
How it Works:

Cyclosporine targets cells in the immune system that cause the allergic reaction in your pet. Dosage varies, and can taper off to fewer doses after several weeks. Consult with your veterinarian for specific treatment details.

Cautions:

Consult your veterinarian about possible side effects or drug interactions.

Brand Name:

Atopica (Novartis Animal Health)

Generic Name:

Cyclosporine (sy-klo-spor'-een) Modified capsule

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving cyclosporine modified:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has liver disease, kidney disease, cancer, high blood pressure, a viral, bacterial or fungal infection, or any other serious or chronic condition. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating, and if you plan to breed your pet.

How should this medication be given:

Give cyclosporine modified exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions, ask your veterinarian or pharmacist to explain them to you. Always give cyclosporine modified 2 hours before or 2 hours after a meal. Allow plenty of water for the pet to drink. Do not remove a capsule from the blister pack until required for use. When the capsule is removed from the blister pack there is a characteristic, noticeable smell which is normal. Your veterinarian may want your pet to have regularly scheduled blood tests during treatment to monitor effectiveness and side effects. Store cyclosporine modified at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and give the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

What should I avoid while giving cyclosporine modified to my pet:

The safe use in breeding, pregnant or lactating dogs has not been determined. Do not use cyclosporine modified in dogs with known allergy to the medication. The drug should not be used in dogs with kidney disease, stomach ulcers, and certain blood disorders. Prolonged use of cyclosporine modified can result in bacterial or fungal infection related to a decreased effect of the immune system.

What are the possible side effects of cyclosporine modified:

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving cyclosporine modified and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue or face, and hives). Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving cyclosporine modified and talk to your veterinarian if your pet develops vomiting, soft stools or diarrhea, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, and change of hair coat. Other side effects may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

Cyclosporine (Modified) Generic To Atopica is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from She would be miserable Without her meds she would be a walking, stinking mass of hives!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! My little guy has stopped itching completely! Now he did recently finish a round of steroids while he got acclimated to this medicine so that may have something to do with it(?), but he's gone from constant itching to no itching. If that changes I will update this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy customer! My Dachsund has been to the vet multiple times this year & given various medicines for severe skin itching & redness. This is the first one that worked. It is expensive at the vet's office but was a great price on this site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works great for Copper .He is 16 yrs old and has alotof allergies and this medicine is working for him.
Date published: 2015-07-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our vet tried everything before using this. He had anal fistulas and was losing fur in clumps and leaving sores. Started with2 a day and now have him on 1 every other day. He is a "mutt", shepherd/husky/rotii, but he's our baby. He's a big boy, 110lbs. 11 years old, so he'll be on it for the rest of his life. Been on it almost 2 years so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth It! My little Lhasa Apso is 18 years old now and has been plagued with allergies this entire life. He was a constant paw licker and chewer and he's had continual ear & eye infections. I took him off of commercial food and that helped a little. Then I added Cyclosporine (Modified) on a daily basis. About the 3rd day on this medication he stopped the licking and chewing and his ears and eyes have cleared up. He's even got a little puppy "happy dance" back in his step. Quite remarkable for an old man.

Q&A

for Generic verision of Atopica this is more expensive than the name brand. What gives?

Asked by: mimi43
Thank you for your question. Cyclosporine for 25 mg 30 pack is $47.77. Atopica for dogs' 25 mg 30 pack is $62.98 so you are saving with the generic. Not sure what you are looking at. Be sure to verify that the doses and quantities are the same.

My Bruno has been prescribed 150mg. He weighs 74lbs. I'm wondering if this dosage is to high. Since he has begun panting. I'm taking him back to the vet tomorrow but am curious right now!

Asked by: Lorraine
Thank you for your question.Difficulty breathing / panting is a serious allergic reaction/ side effect of the medication .Stop giving cyclosporine modified and seek emergency veterinary medical attention.

Is the product made by Sandoz/Novartis called Cyclosporine Capsules USP (Modified) the same as this product?  The Sandoz product states it is not bioequivalent to Sandimmune. 

Asked by: Cc0951
That is correct. This is Cyclosporine modified, which is not bioequivalent to Sandimmune (non-modified cyclosporine).
