Methimazole Compounded


 
Q & A
 
 
                         
 
 
  Product Info   How to use   What is a compounded medication?   Customer Reviews   Q & A  

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.

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 cat, please contact our pharmacy 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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 06/10/2013

Can you compound this strength? Our previous vet got it for us in an easy to dispense pen form so the syringe method is new to us. Also, how much would the 10 mg syringes cost?

ie how many doses at one a day does each order contain? Is it enough for 10 days, 20 days or what period?

Does each order come with everything you need to administer the given number of doses that each order covers ie is there a separate syringe for each day or does it come all loaded in one syringe which is then good for 10, 20 or 30 days of individual doses?

It is very unclear at 50mg/1ml to be given once a day exactly what you get by requesting one order. If you could be a bit more specific it would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer: 
Ken, please call our pharmacy at 1-888-738-6331 and provide the dose your cat gets of
methimazole per day....and we can tell you exactly how long a 50mg/1ml will last. For
example, if a cat is getting 5mg per day..........There are 10 doses...or a 10 days supplt in the
1 ml syringe. Typically, a customer will order 3 syringes of the 50mg/ml to have enough for a
one month supply. The most you can order would be a 90 day supply because the gel is only
stable for a 90 day period after being compounded.
