Hey Debbie... sorry you are going through all this. I have pa also, but I don't take cyclosporine for it. I am on Enbrel. Has your rhuemy thought about putting you on a biologic to help control the pa? Since I have been on Enbrel, I haven't had to use any type of pain med... I still flare, but it isn't as bad as it used to be. Good luck to you, and please keep posting... Duck
