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.

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 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.

How to Use
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.

What is a Compounded 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.

How big is the chewtab? This is for a cat, and I will have to give it to her with a pillgun, so it would need to be pretty small.

Asked by: Anonymous
The chew tabs are a little smaller than a dime in size and the depth is about 1cm.

Information on the cyproheptadine transdermal for cats. If my cat need 4mg per day I think this is 1ml. You show a transdermal amount of 50 mg.

So I guess your 50mg product would only last for 12.5 days of dosage?
Asked by: Anonymous
You are correct, if your cat is getting 4mg per day, our 1 ml syringes will last 12.5 days.

Transdermal cyproheptadine

Do you compound cyproheptadine to make a transdermal gel for cats? Thank you
Asked by: Anonymous
Our compounding service does provide a Cyproheptadine transdermal. This is available in a 50mg/ml concentration, and comes in a 1ml syringe. Your veterinarian will need to provide you with a prescription for this product. Thanks for your question.
