Frequently asked questions about cyclosporine

What is cyclosporine?

Cyclosporine is a prescription medication commonly administered as an ophthalmic solution (eye drops) to increase tear production in patients with dry eye disease.

What is cyclosporine used to treat?

Cyclosporine is prescribed to help individuals with dry eye disease (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) increase tear production. Dry eye is a common condition that occurs when your eyes are not able to produce tears that adequately lubricate the eye. When you blink, tears lubricate the surface of your eyes, keeping them free of foreign materials. When the glands in and around the eyelid are unable to produce enough tears to properly lubricate the surface of the eye, your eyes may feel dry and uncomfortable. Not only can dry eyes be uncomfortable, but they may also lead to eye damage and infection.

Common symptoms of dry eyes include:
Eye redness
Stinging, burning, or scratchy sensations in the eye
Watery eyes
Light sensitivity
Blurry vision


Dry eyes can be uncomfortable and dangerous. Eyes that lack lubrication are at risk of inflammation, damage, and infections. Poorly lubricated eyes are common for adults over the age of 50. Women are at greater risk of dry eyes due to hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause, as are people who frequently wear contact lenses.

How does cyclosporine work?

Cyclosporine eye drops belong to a classification of medications known as immunomodulators. These drugs work by decreasing inflammation (swelling) in the eye which can help encourage tear production. This increased tear production, in turn, helps prevent the symptoms of dry eye and decreases the risk of dangerous complications caused by inadequate tear production.

What are the most common side effects of cyclosporine?

Cyclosporine has been shown to cause some side effects. If these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days or become severe, talk to your health care provider.

Common symptoms reported when taking cyclosporine include:

  • Burning, itching, or irritation of the eyes
  • Swelling
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye discharge
  • Headache

This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are among the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience symptoms such as hives, difficulty breathing, swelling, or itching.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with cyclosporine. Cyclosporine can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are planning to become pregnant, are pregnant, or are currently breastfeeding.

What is the typical starting dose of cyclosporine?

For adults and children over the age of 12, one drop of cyclosporine should be applied to each affected eye every twelve hours. For individuals managing vernal keratoconjunctivitis (chronic and severe allergic inflammation of the eye), one drop should be applied to each affected eye 4 times a day.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of cyclosporine without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
