What is Atopica?

AtopicaTM (cyclosporine capsules) is a proven product for atopic dermatitis for dogs. It targets the cause of the problem to help reduce the incessant scratching, rubbing and licking.

Atopica requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (at least 6 months of age and weighing at least 4 pounds)

Benefits:

  • Effective in reducing itching and skin lesions
  • No need of any more steroids
  • Safe to use over long periods
  • No serious side effects

Cautions:

For use only in dogs. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. Capsules should not be broken or opened. Wear gloves during administration and wash hands after. Do not use Atopica in dogs with a history of neoplasia, reproducing dogs, or dogs with a hypersensitivity to cyclosporine. Atopica is a systemic immunosuppressant that may increase the susceptibility to infection and the development of neoplasia. Be sure to tell your veterinarian what other medications your pet is currently using.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and give the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

Possible side effects of Atopica:

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Atopica and seek emergency veterinary care; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue or face, and hives). Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Atopica and talk to your veterinarian if your pet develops vomiting, soft stools or diarrhea, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, and change of hair coat.

Storage:

Should be stored at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep away from pets and children.

Directions:
