Cyclosporine: I have been dealing with CIDP for about eight years. I had one five day treatment with IVIG. I thought it helped but got a life threatening complication from the drug. No more IVIG.
Prednisone was a disaster for me and did no good.
Plasmafarisis did not help.
Chemo with cytokines for six months did not help.
I heard about cyclosporine on this forum. I was on it for a couple of years and I got a lot better. I stopped cyclosporine for a year or so and after a virus my condition has deteriorate significantly. I’m back on cyclosporine, probably should not have stopped, and hopping for improve the again.
PS when I overdo exercise I’m a basket case for three or four days.
