Anipryl 35 35
Newly, my 13 year old Westie, has been on Anipryl since January 2011. He has stopped his midnight pacing and panting and no longer experiences the early evening panic attacks ("sundowners?") that included barking, pawing and extreme trembling. This morning he was back outside, running like a mad man, barking at birds and bugs and having a great time! 04/12/2011
Effective in short amount of time We are amazed how active our 14 year old Shellie mix is since being on anipryl. She is more alert and runs with our other dog. At the beginning of this year she used to sleep all the time. Now she is awake almost all day long. Her incontinence of urine has subsided. She does occasionally regurgitate her saliva but not sure the cause of this. 08/08/2014
We are thankful for Anipryl! Our 15 yr. old mixed breed dog began to get confused when we would let her outside to use the bathroom. She would wander around and not come in when we called her. She began to use the bathroom in the house - during the night, and sometimes during the day (she had never done this in her lifetime!). She also began to whine and whimper a lot throughout the day - for no apparent reason. Our vet diagnosed dementia and recommended Anipryl. We have been very happy with the improvement!! She rarely uses the bathroom in the house. Her whining is much reduced. She is much like her old self. We are soooo thankful that this medicine has worked for her. 05/21/2014
Anipryl for Cog. Dysfunction My 17 year old Jack Russell has been on Anipryl for dementia for 2 months now. Previously he was so disoriented he would walk into his food or water dish and get stuck there whining until someone rescued him. He would also get stuck in corners and bark for help - not remembering how to back up or get free. After about a week on Anipryl he stopped walking into his dishes and getting stuck in corners. He will still walk up against corners but after a while he'll turn his head and move along. I have not seen any change in his disposition. He is still pretty low energy and no interest in toys or people like he used to exhibit when he was younger. He also doesn't run around or wag his tail as some other reviewers have noted (unfortunately). However, we are keeping him on Anipryl as it keeps him from getting stuck and waking us up at night. He also seems to rest better at night (somewhat). So although it has not been a miracle drug for us we have seen some improvement - enough to keep our dog with us for a while longer. We were at the point prior to Anipryl that we were going to have to euthanize him as neither the dog nor the humans in our house could get any sleep at night. If you are having severe issues with dementia this is worth a try. 03/10/2014
my 18 yr old male cairn Had come to the point of just staring at the wall most of the time. The first 2 weeks on this great drug brought him back AND he was also walking and reacting like his old self. He's still with me! going on 19! dw 09/04/2013

Why are you completely out of this medication is all doses?
started my dog on 5mg anipryl for cushings can i buy 10mg and split them ? and will they work as good.
can the vet prescribe a 30mg packet and I split it in half to get the recommended 15mg dosage? please let me know. thanks
Do the side affects eventually subside or do I need to stop giving them to her? Her vet is unfortunately not familiar with this medication. So I have to do all the ground work. I would appreciate any input
Answer:You're saying your veterinarian prescribed a medication for your pet that she is not familiar with? Diarrhea and vomiting are common side effects for this medication. It's possible that the symptoms will go away as the pet gets used to the medication. However, if these symptoms continue more than 4 or 5 days, your veterinarian may want to consider either adjusting the dose or possibly using a different medication. In the meantime you should watch what you feed your pet and keep plenty of water available for her to drink.
Or coupons from the drug manufacturer to help pay for this very costly medication? My Lab takes 2, 30mg tabs every morning for Cushings.
