You may find that while on cyclosporine, you’ll have to deal with some common side effects. These include headaches, diarrhea, hair growth, acne, dizziness, an upset stomach, flushing, or belly pain.
You may also end up dealing with a much harsher reaction to the medication, which you should alert your doctor to. This reaction could be an allergic one where you end up with a rash; hives; itching; swelling; difficulty breathing, swallowing, or talking; and facial swelling.
You could also end up with high blood pressure. Signs for this issue include very bad headaches, dizziness, passing out, and changes in eyesight.
Other issues could include kidney problems, where you might have blood in your urine, or electrolyte problems, such as having seizures.
