Can you (or any of you) tell me more about this? Side effects? Is it an immune suppressant like Atopica?I'd honestly rather use a low dose steroid over Atopica after some of the side effects I've seen :/

Any cost estimates? I mean, if it's going to cost me $50 a month, then I might as well just do desensitization, it's cheaper in the long run.
