I am also on Atopica, 35mg every other day. It is working out quite well for me but I started out with 35mg daily. It costs my parents about $80 a month and I've been on it about 6 months. My skin was so itchy and stinky like yeast but now my skin has returned to a healthy pink and the smell is gone. I also have to have a weekly bath with medicated shampoo, malaseb.
