Important Safety Information

CYCLAVANCE™ (cyclosporine oral solution)(USP Modified): For use in dogs only. Wear gloves during and wash hands after administration. Gastrointestinal problems and gingival hyperplasia may occur at the initial recommended dose of CYCLAVANCE Oral Solution for Dogs. CYCLAVANCE Oral Solution for Dogs should be used with caution: 1) in cases with diabetes mellitus as it may cause elevated levels of serum glucose; 2) in dogs with renal insufficiency since the effect of cyclosporine use on dogs with compromised renal function has not been studied; 3) in simultaneous administration with drugs that suppress the P-450 enzyme system, such as azoles (e.g. ketoconazole), that may lead to increased plasma levels of cyclosporine. Killed vaccines are recommended for dogs receiving CYCLAVANCE Oral Solution for Dogs because the impact of cyclosporine on the immune response to modified live vaccines has not been evaluated.
