Answer

Cyclosporine is recommended by AUA as a fifth-line treatment [3] . CUA guidelines agree that due to its adverse side effects, cyclosporine should be considered a last resort in patients with inflammation and refractory disease. Close monitoring, including measurement of blood pressure, creatinine, and cyclosporine levels, is required. [4]
