What is Atopica?
Atopica is a soft oral capsule for the treatment of certain allergies (atopy, atopic dermatitis) in dogs. These allergies occur when hypersensitive dogs come in contact with or inhale common allergens such as house dust mites, pollens and molds, which then generate an allergic reaction. It may also be prescribed for other conditions. Active ingredient is cyclosporine, which suppresses the immune system.

Who is it for?
It is labeled for use in dogs who weigh at least 4 lbs; the safety of Atopica in dogs less than 6 months of age has not been determined. Some veterinarians may prescribe it for cats.

What are the benefits?

* Relieves itchy skin caused by allergies
* Reduces the gnawing & scratching behavior which aggravates skin conditions
* Long-term treatment without some of the side effects associated with steroids

How does Atopica work?
Atopica suppresses the immune system and is used to treat immune-mediated diseases, especially those involving the skin. Atopica targets the immune cells involved in the allergic reaction.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Cyclosporine is available as a generic equivalent.

How is it given?
Give this medication without food. If side effects related to the digestive system are observed, contact your veterinarian, who may direct you to give the medication with a small amount of food.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

Atopica (Cyclosporine) is bitter. Do not open the capsules and attempt to give the contents by sprinkling on the food. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Your veterinarian may decrease the dose of Atopica after several weeks of treatment.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
It may take several weeks to achieve the maximum effect of Atopica. Signs of atopy should decrease. If allergies are seasonal, it is recommended to start Atopica 1-2 months prior to when the allergies usually start.

What form(s) does it come in?
