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.
