Dear <PATIENT NAME>

               IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR MEDICATION

As a transplant recipient you have been prescribed a drug treatment known as
ciclosporin (sometimes spelt cyclosporine) which, as you may know, plays an important
role in helping your body accept your transplanted organ. There are now different
formulations of ciclosporin available and you should know that the specific brand of
ciclosporin prescribed to you is <BRAND NAME>.

Different formulations of ciclosporin carry out the same role in helping protect your
transplant, but it is important that you do not receive a different formulation unless your
transplant unit has specifically arranged this with you. Your GP should ensure that you are
maintained on the correct brand of ciclosporin but, as your transplant unit, we felt it
important for you too to be fully aware of the need for care and to query any change in
your ciclosporin prescriptions.

It is important to note that there may actually be slight differences in packaging between
different prescriptions of your particular named brand of ciclosporin. If you have any
questions about this, or any other element of your transplant care, please do not hesitate
to contact your GP or your transplant unit, who will be happy to explain this in more detail.

A patient booklet highlighting the importance of receiving a continued supply of ciclosporin,
as well as providing sources of further information, is available.
