Cyclosporine is actually a drug that has been used for many years for transplants as an anti rejection medication. My father was on it for 15 years post heart transplant. After 12 years or so he started developing kidney failure and he was told that could have been a side effect from the medication. Other than that, it was a great medication for him.
