Fourth Phase: Cyclosporine

When other treatments have not been successful, cyclosporine can be used.  You should discuss this drug with your health care provider to decide if your symptoms justify the risks.  There are many side effects, and because it is an immunosuppressant, it can reduce your ability to fight disease.
