Helpful Tips:

While it’s not approved by the FDA for cats, it is commonly prescribed by veterinarians to treat Cats.

Cyclosporine is generally given once or twice daily depending on the disease being treated.

Dogs with atopic dermatitis begin with once daily usage and then taper to a schedule more like every other day or less.
Because the dose one swallows orally does not reliably produce a predictable blood level, therapeutic blood level monitoring is often recommended with oral cyclosporine use.
 
A blood cyclosporine level is usually checked a day or two into therapy and then every 2-4 weeks.  The lowest blood level of the day should be 100-500 ng/ml in dogs and 250-1,000 ng/ml in cats, though this in some part depends on the laboratory running the test. In using cyclosporine for the treatment of atopic dermatitis, blood levels are generally not monitored because it is the concentration of drug in the patient's skin (not the blood) which is pertinent and there is no way to measure skin levels of cyclosporine.
