How to Order Prescriptions


Atopica for Dogs is used to control atopic dermatitis and its symptoms.

Uses and Benefits

  • Safe and effective non-steroidal option for long-term control of canine atopic (allergic) dermatitis. 
  • After six weeks of daily treatment with Atopica at 5mg/kg, itching was reduced on average by 45 percent and skin lesions by 67 percent.
  • Available in soft gelatin capsules

How It Works

Atopica targets the immune cells involved in the allergic reaction. You usually only administer one dose a day to control symptoms, but many dogs can be effectively controlled with every-other-day or twice-weekly dosing.

Dosage and Administration

The initial dose of ATOPICA is 5 mg/kg/day (3.3-6.7 mg/kg/day) as a single daily dose for 30 days. Following this initial daily treatment period, the dose of ATOPICA may be tapered by decreasing the frequency of dosing to every other day or twice weekly, until a minimum frequency is reached which will maintain the desired therapeutic effect. ATOPICA should be given at least one hour before or two hours after a meal. If a dose is missed, the next dose should be administered (without doubling) as soon as possible, but dosing should be no more frequent than once daily.

Atopica should be stored and dispensed in the original unit-dose container at controlled room temperature 59°-77°F (15°-25°C). Keep away from children and pets.


Atopica is contraindicated for use in dogs with a history of neoplasia. Do not use in dogs with a hypersensitivity to cyclosporine.


Atopica (cyclosporine) is a systemic immunosuppressant that may increase the susceptibility to infection and the development of neoplasia.


There are many possible drug interactions. Be sure to tell your veterinarian what other medications your pet is currently using. Give Atopica at least one hour before food or 2 hours after food.

Possible Side Effects

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Atopica and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue or face, and hives). Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Atopica and talk to your veterinarian if your pet develops vomiting, soft stools or diarrhea, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, and change of hair coat. Other side effects may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.
