What is Cyproheptadine Compounded?

Cyproheptadine Compounded is used as an appetite stimulant for sick cats, including those undergoing chemotherapy. It also is used to treat feline asthma in cats whose condition is not totally controlled by corticosteroids and bronchodilators. Veterinary behaviorists also use cyproheptadine in some cases of inappropriate urine-spraying behavior in cats. In addition, it is used for atopy, which is an allergic response to inhaled substances such as pollen. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Cyproheptadine Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

This product cannot be shipped into NC or SC.


Please note: Chewtabs and liquids, unless specified otherwise, are shipped unflavored. If you wish to add a flavor for your pet, please contact our customer service at 1-888-738-6331.

The following flavors are available to make this product more palatable for your cat: Fish Chowder, Salmon, Tuna, Shrimp, Sardine, and Chicken.

The following flavors are available to make this product more palatable for your dog: Chicken, Beef and Bacon.

For: Dogs & Cats

Benefits:
Stimulates the appetites of sick cats
Treats feline asthma
Used for atopy

How it works:
Cyproheptadine Compounded works by increasing the appetite of cats. It is is metabolized by the liver and excreted in the urine. When used as an appetite stimulant it should be noted that it may take two to three days for the drug to reach full effect.

Cautions:
Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. It is not known if cyproheptadine is excreted in milk. Cyproheptadine should be used in pregnant or lactating animals only if the benefits outweigh the risks.

Directions:

Give this medication to your pet exactly as your veterinarian prescribes.
Cyproheptadine is usually given two or three times a day, around the same time(s) every day.
Tip: Wash your hands after giving your pet this medication.

A compounded medication is the creation of a particular medication to fit the unique needs of a patient, including changing the form of the medication (e.g., from a solid pill to a liquid) for a variety reasons (e.g., to make it easier to take, to avoid a non-essential ingredient, to obtain the exact dose needed, adding favorite flavors).

If you are having difficulty giving your pet prescribed medication or need to find a discontinued medication, 1-800-PetMeds offers compounding services on select medications. We can prepare the following: (1) custom strength quantities of a medication (as capsules, liquid, chewable tablets, or transdermal (absorbed through the skin); (2) dosage forms to mask bitter or unpleasant taste (such as capsules or chewable tablets that can also be flavored); (3) dosage forms to make it easier to dose your pet such as a transdermal or liquid (that can also be flavored); and (4) discontinued products such as cisapride or DES.
