Just started cyclosporine for CU and I'd like to know when to expect relief and when the side effect
Posted , 3 users are following.
I just started CsA at 300mg daily. The goal is to get to 500mg daily as my doc wants to dose me at 5mg/my (I weigh 230lbs or 104kg). My first question to those who've been on this drug for cholinergic urticaria/any other forms of chronic urticaria is when did you experience symptom relief. Please note I am not taking any other drugs like steroids or antihistamines. Second question relates to the bloated, nausea and dull tummy ache within 1 hr of taking just 1 pill. Is this normal? If so, does this side effect eventually diminish in severity? Also, are there any tips to mitigate the gastrointestinal side effects such as eating with solid food, yoghure, etc?
Finally do the pills have to be so huge?? Goodness gracious :-)
