Cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune)
Menostar may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, potentially increasing the chance of side effects of cyclosporine. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dose, or you may need to switch to one of the many Menostar alternatives.
