What is ATOPICA TM (Cyclosporine capsules, USP)?
ATOPICA is an oral medication specifically approved for the control of the clinical signs of atopic dermatitis. Unlike steroids, which are the most frequently prescribed drugs for atopic dermatitis, ATOPICA selectively targets specific immune cells responsible for the dog’s allergic response. ATOPICA comes in soft gelatin capsules in four different sizes. Based on results from several studies, ATOPICA was generally well tolerated in dogs. As with all drugs, side effects may occur.
