If anyone here has had this drug leave me a note? I need a fasting lab check tomorrow to check kidney function and a few other organ functions before medicine starts in the evening. I hate new drugs and I hate that I need them.

I have very recently taken cyclosporine.  I took it for cerebritis/kidney involvement.  The only side effect i really had was high blood pressure.  I had to have monthly cyclosporine trough levels drawn and biweekly kidney functions drawn.  Good luck,  Judy
P.S.  why are you being placed on cyclosporine?
