Neoral (Cyclosporine) is a prescription medication that is used to prevent organ rejection in people who have received a liver, kidney or heart transplant. This medication is used along with other medications to allow your new organ to function normally. Cyclosporine is also used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and plaque psoriasis.
