What is Methimazole Compounded?

Methimazole is used to treat hyperthyroidism in cats. It has largely replaced propylthiouracil in this treatment process since it has a lower incidence of adverse side effects. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Methimazole requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Visit Methimazole for regular 5 Mg tablets.

For:

Cats

Benefits:
  • Effectively treats hyperthyroidism in cats
  • Rapid results
How it Works:

Hyperthyroidism is a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. Methimazole inhibits the production of thyroid hormones.

Cautions:

Blood tests must be done to check for proper dosage. Do not use in pregnant or nursing animals. Do not give your pet a live vaccine while giving methimazole. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops signs of an infection.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Methimazole is a prescription medication used by veterinarians to treat overactive (hyper) thyroid in cats.
  • Methimazole is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for cats.
  • Methimazole is also used before thyroid surgery or radioactive iodine treatment.
  • Periodic blood tests will be necessary while your cat is taking this medication.
Tip:

Do not use in pregnant or nursing animals. Methimazole can be given with or without food.

What is a compounded 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.

Customer Reviews
Methimazole Compounded is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oral Thyroid Meds I just placed my 2nd order for 180 Edible Methimazole 10mg compounded. Great product. My cat, Magic, age 17, loves them. I give him 2/day for a total of 20mg/day. I previously used 5mg oral pills and had to pry open his mouth and drop them in. The oral version is great. Magic looks forward to taking his meds and want more!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A miracle for cat meds It was pure torture to get my lovely kitty to take a pill and because of tooth decay, she couldn't handle the pill wraps. Then came this transdermal hyperthyroid medication--you just shoot a small amount out of a plastic syringe right on to the inside of tehear where there is no hair.....and that's it. The cat gets her meds and an ear rub and both she and I are happy. By the way--PetMeds is one third the price of a local pharmacy for this compounded medication--can't beat it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only chewable medication my cat will eat! My cat developed thyroid problems after he turned 10 years old and he had lost a lot of weight. He won't take pills and he didn't like the first chewable medication that the Vet ordered. This is the only medication that he will eat and he takes it twice a day. He has gained weight and is doing better. We are very happy customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It saved my cat's life!!!!! Without the chewable compounding, my cat wouldn't be alive! This is a treat for my cat, not the struggle of trying to get a pill down her throat, hiding the pill and hoping she will eat it, crushing it up into anything she will eat, you know the unsuccessful drills. Cat owners know the horrors of your pet being on twice a day medication and she won't have anything to do with the pill. She's not a dog who will eat anything. I'm a five year chewable customer who is 100% satisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not for cats I believe a dog would eat these "treats" up quickly, but they are not for cats. The compounded pill for a 5mg is about 1/2 inch and can be flavored (like chicken is made with chicken broth). The problem is that the consistency of the pill feels and will chew like a piece of plastic. It is so hard, you need a knife to cut it. Anyway, my cat licked it a couple of times but wouldnt eat it. If they were made much softer, a cat might go for it.

I need methimazole in 5mg but in liquid. Does this company make it in liquid in that strength? If you do how much does it cost?  My cat spits out the half pill I give her even when I put it in food.

Asked by: Sylvia
We do carry a compounded liquid formulation of this medication in this strength. Pricing can be found on our website.

My vet prescription shows methimazole lipo TD 2.5MG/0.1ML syringe. I have two cats that get the same dose once a day in the ear. They have been on this for about 4 months with great results. Blood tests got expensive! What do I need to order for 2 months?

Asked by: Sparkyinpa
In order for a 2 months supply of medication to be dispensed, the prescription must be written for at least that amount of medication.

I would like to make medication easier on my cat

My cat takes 5mg methimazole tabs twice daily. I literally have to cram these down her throat and we both hate it. Can I switch her to the chewtabs or liquid? Also could I order 10mg so we are only giving her one dose? thank you
Asked by: Dawn
Yes, you can certainly switch your cat to the chewable tablets or the liquid, as long as your veterinarian authorizes this change.

Helli. My kitty gets 2ml a day. Does this mean i would 50 applications in a 100mg syringe for only 17 plus change??? Peace 

Asked by: Sherri Lynn Herrmann
This is a 1 mL syringe that contains 100 mg. If you mean 2 mg daily (not 2 mL), then yes, you would receive 50 doses per syringe.

Hi my cat is prescribed 2.5 mg BID. I need the transdermal gel. How many doses would I get from the 50mg/ml pen?

Asked by: Krose
How big is the syringe? If it's a 1ml syringe then there's 5 ml' s per every 0.1 ml in a 50mg/ml syringe. Then a dose of 2.5mls would be 20 doses right?
