My partner has been taking 150mg of ciclosporin twice a day for the last 2 months, I can only describe it as a miracle. After 15 years of 60/70% of his body being covered it is almost clear , just the worst parts are a little red but clearing up more daily.
Today, the worst news was that his blood pressure is too high and the creatinine levels in kidneys are too high , They would not prescribe any more. To make matters worse , his consultant is off work sick and this decision was made by a locum consultant.
He is devastated as he tried acetretin already and all the topical treatments and they had no effect.
He now has to wait for a new appointment when his consultant returns from sick leave . We thought maybe this summer would be the first were he could wear a t*shirt with short sleeves.....now we are expecting the condition to return with a vengeance :(
