Tapazole 12 12
dangerous side-effects I didn't think my 16 yo cat had a problem at all, just went to the vet for routine stuff. The vet said he was mildly hyperthyroid and that could get to be a problem and put him on the drug at 2.5 mg per day. After one month, his liver tests showed complete failure. He is still alive due to a lot of injections but he won't eat at all, and he's too old to anesthetize and tube feed. So now my cat, who appeared completely healthy and active, will probably be put to sleep this week. Unless a cat is severely hyperthyroid, I would not use this drug. 05/12/2014
Tapazole 5mg My 19 year old cat Abby has been on Tapazole 5mg for several years now and doing well. When I get up in the morning, she is there waiting for me to give her the pill in the pill pocket and won't eat until she gets it. :) She takes two a day. But unfortunately, the price has more than doubled and I am now looking to see if I can purchase this medication at a lower cost or possibly try the generic. I didn't have any choice. I see other costs listed here and it is much lower. Have to talk to Pet Meds and find out why. Not happy. I have three other cats and it is expensive. 11/25/2013
Tapazole great product My 16 year old cat lady was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism about one month ago. Her T4 and Free T4 were high. We started her on 2.5mg for two weeks then checked her blood results. Her blood results have improved in that they are starting to go down. She will be on 5mg for the next month and then we are going to take her blood again to see if the higher dose will bring down T4 and Free T4 down to normal and keep it that way. Did not want to start her on too high a dose as it can cause liver and kidney problems. She is doing fine on this medication and actually has gained some weight back. She is much more relaxed and not so nervous. Also Tapazole is not generic Methimazole is. Will try her on Methimazole later on if cost is prohibited. Also I put the tablet into her moist food that i give once a day and it goes right down and no stress to her. Also you can't beat the prices of 1-800-pet meds. The vet is a lot more expensive but I do love my vets-they are very caring and truly want to do what is best for my pet. 03/29/2012

Tapazole My 16 year old female cat lost half her body weight (went from 14 pounds to under 7) due to hyperthyroidism. She went on Tapazole, which literally saved her life! She has a ravanous appetite, but has regained a lot of the weight and is radically improved. We no longer feel her bony spine when we pet her back. This medication saved her life! She's been on the brand name, but am going to try to switch her to the generic due to the high cost. 5 stars for effectiveness and overall rating, and 1 star for taste. We have to force feed her the pill twice daily. 03/29/2010
