Selegiline 8 8
Check the facts I originally had started my 15-year-old poodle-bichon on Anipryl. When I tried to get a refill, they were out and have been each time, so I ended up getting the generic. I did not realize until today that the generic was half the mg amount. Benji has done so-so on the generic, but I don't think my vet realizes the difference either, as he has me giving him only 1-1/2 tabs a day when he should probably be taking at least 2 tabs a day. So I am holding my judgment on this for now. 04/19/2013
Do your own homework before you buy When I read the label and realized that the Selegiline was an MAO inhibitor, I decided not to "roll the dice" and possibly compromise my dog. I had relied on the advice of the vet, and should have done my homework before placing the order. The dog is doing better on neurotransmitter enhancing supplements that I acquired. 03/18/2013
Unreasonable Cost My dog needs 30mg daily and has taken anipryl; a single tablet daily makes a 30-day supply cost $95. This generic is a 5mg, meaning she'd need 6 a day; a 60-tablet bottle would be a 10-day supply at $143. I thought generics were supposed to save money... 07/01/2012
excellent sammie is our female Shih-Tzu, she is doing very well, she is white and is 17 lbs she is 12 yrs old and she acts like a puppy, of course she is spoiled but such a good girl she is an indoor dog, the doctor said she does not look like she is 12, all I can say is she is very alert and she knows so much. 11/20/2009

Thank-you for your question. Yes, you would have to increase the number of selegiline tablets from 1 to 3 in order to equal 15mg of Anipryl. Anipryl is currently out of stock. Hope this helps!
My 16 year old Jack Russell has been on Selegiline for about 7 months now to control canine cognitive dysfunction. He is also in the middle stages of renal failure -- kidney values are ok but protein leaking in the urine. He is also on spironolactone, thyroxine, amlodipine and enalapril. Recently he went off his food and lost a good bit of weight. We switched his food and he is eating & gaining weight again, but when he lost the weight he began losing the use of his hind legs. Our vet has recommended Rimadyl for this situation even though there is a contraindication with Selegiline--a judgment made as a quality of life call. My question is, what damage is this potentially going to do to him and what should we be watching for if/when the impact of this manifests itself?
Great question; in regards to drug interactions between Rimadyl and Selegiline, there is a magnified risk of behavioral fluctuations, including lethargy, hallucinations, disorientations, irritability, and sleep disturbances. You should also be observant for an increased incidence of gastrointestinal side effects, which include nausea/vomiting, diarrhea and constipation.
Good luck and I hope this was beneficial for you.
