Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holding steady Cody's dementia seems to be on a steady course right now. Worst times are at night but otherwise doing okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anipryl Before Anipryl, Cody was having extreme trouble getting around and getting lost inside the house. He was having so much trouble walking that I was putting him in a wagon and pulling him to bed at night and taking him outside to potty. This was extreme difficult for me since I have debilitaging OA. After the first week on Anipryl he was able to stand and walk on his own with having difficulty only occasionally. I am so glad his VET prescribed this med. I know this will not last forever, but it gave him to me for a little longer. Thank you Pet Meds for your help getting my dog back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product seems to be making a difference! My 15 year old Springer Spaniel was suffering from dementia, plus he is deaf and partially blind. It was sad to watch him become confused about where he was and what he was supposed to do. Wasn't sleeping at night and would just pace around and cry. My veterinarian put him on Anipryl , as well as Milk Thistle, Omega 3, and Senilite, all of which I have been giving him for a little over a month now. She also told me to try Purina Pro Health Neurocare Dog food (rx needed). He is doing so much better that it is truly noticeable. Has a little spunk back, eats very well, is sleeping much better at night. Not sure how much longer he will be with us (he is healthy in every other way-proof from full blood workup), but at least he is more comfortable and I am getting a little more rest. Thanks Pet Meds! (I have to buy the Neurocare dog food through another supplier because I did not see it on your site -- perhaps you could carry it in the future so I can do one-stop shopping)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anipryl has given our Lab two extra years--so far Our 11-year-old yellow Lab was standing in corners, digging out our closets, shredding paper (skipped the newspaper, went right to important mail), could not settle down at night--diagnosis was canine dysfunctional disorder. One 30-mg Anipryl daily brought her right back to a young dog personality. It did take a good 60 days to eliminate all the unwanted behaviors, but she was much happier right from the first pill. Her physical health is quite good--very surprised at that, as she is now 13 1/2. She's a happy, active senior. The cost is bit disappointing--about $100 per month--but my best friend and I had two more happy years together (and counting). I'm going to echo what others have said: we humans need our own pill, just like this, for our golden years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 180° Turn Within a Week Our 16 yo lab began exhibiting signs of dementia. She would get herself locked into a bathroom, lost in a corner, mildly aggressive, digging in trash, and lost her training. She accidently shut herself into a bedroom and she literally clawed her way out. We started her on a regiment of Anapril and within the first week she was a 5yo again looking to go bird hunting. We finally lost her 2 years later. Too bad it doesn't work as well in humans!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anipryl worked almost immediately for my girl. Within 24 hours of having received her first dose of 15 mg, my girl was almost entirely back to normal. Within eight hours, she was briefly making eye contact and even wagging her tail at times. This medication worked for my girl who was recently diagnosed with canine cognitive dysfunction, and I'm thrilled to have her back. Her success with Anipryl may be due to the fact that it was prescribed and given so soon after seeing symypms of dementia or some other variable, but it most definitely works for her. As for my business transaction with 1-800-PetMeds, I was impressed with their services, and I will continue to use them for this medication and perhaps others as necessary. The order was shipped right away, and our other pooch enjoyed the doggy treat that they sent since Talli was too "out of it" at the time to even consider a hard treat. Thankfully, she was willing to take a Greenies pill pocket, hence her receiving her medication every day. The only downside to using this company was waiting for the pills to arrive (I was an emotional wreck seeing my girl in that condition), but that issue can easily be resolved with properly timing subsequent orders. If your best friend has CCD, this prescription is worth considering, and you'll likely save money by choosing 1-800-PetMeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service My dog has been on Anipryl for 2 years and doing great after almost losing him. Our vet's receptionist has failed to order his meds numerous times. The speed of service from 1-800-petmeds was so appreciated!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We got our dog back Our 11-year-old female Lab had all sorts of anxiety, was trying to build "nests" out of anything she could find, was pulling stuff out of closets and hiding in them, standing in corners, looking lost. Didn't answer to her name. We began to see some improvements on Anipryl right away, but it took a full four months on the 30 mg daily tablet to see a completely normal dog again. She's been on Anipryl for over a year, and this drug gave us more time with our otherwise very active and healthy dog, who looks and acts more like a 7-year-old than a 12-year-old. Everybody is happy. Try this for "old dog syndrome"; give it some time, you will be glad you waited it out.

Questions

Can Trilostane be taken with Anipryl?

Asked by: Jjm1235
With it being a prescription medication we suggest going over that question with your veterinarian. We would hate to give you incorrect information.

My female scottie has been diagnosed with cushings , she weights 26 pounds . What would be the dosage.

Asked by: Nancy
The usual starting dose to treat Cushing's disease is 0.45mg per pound of pet's body weight given once a day in the morning. If no result within two months, may increase to 0.9mg per pound of pet's body weight. If still no response after one month of the increased dose, reevaluate the pet. Your veterinarian will determine the appropriate dose for your pet's condition.

I have a dog who has been on Anipryl for a week. She was making big improvements and acting more like herself. Then the last two days she has regressed to where she was before -- is it normal to have ups and downs like this while starting the medication?

Asked by: person
It is normal to see an adjustment period upon initiating a treatment regimen of Anipryl. Consult your veterinarian if you have concerns regarding it's efficacy.

I have a jack russell with ccd and was told to give her according to her bodyweight which is 12.2 pounds, however I only see 30mg package....am I supposed to give her 5 mg...is everyone else giving their jack russell 30mg? Where is the option for 5mg tabs

Asked by: rebel
The dosage is 0.2-0.45mg per lb. Do not give your dog the 30mg tablet, especially if the directions say 5mg. In our stock we have the generic Anipryl (Selegiline) at 5 mg tablets. Consult your veterinarian for a new prescription.

What are the contraindications for Anipryl 

Asked by: Meme
Selegiline is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity. In human patients, it is contraindicated in patients receiving meperidine and possibly other opiod drugs. The manufacturer cautions to perform appropriate diagnostic tests before initiating therapy. This should not be used to treat hyperadrenocorticism NOT of pituitary origin.

What is Anipryl (Selegiline)?

Anipryl (selegiline), also known as L-Deprenyl, is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) that treats Cushing's Disease and Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (senility). Anipryl requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • First and only FDA-approved drug used to control clinical signs associated with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome
  • First and only product approved to control uncomplicated PDH (pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism) Cushing's disease

How it Works:

Anipryl increases the concentration of a nervous system messenger chemical called dopamine. Higher levels of dopamine improve many cognitive processes. Treating Cushing's Disease has traditionally been centered on suppressing the adrenal gland's production and release of cortisone. However, this approach has a high potential for side effects. Selegiline has allowed for a new approach by suppressing the pituitary gland directly.

Cautions:

Because Anipryl belongs to a class of drugs called Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOI) it should not be given with antidepressants such as Prozac. Do not use in pregnant or nursing animals. If any serious side effects occur (difficulty breathing, hives, agitation; swelling of the lips, tongue or face), stop giving Anipryl and seek emergency veterinary medical attention.

Brand Name:

Anipryl (Zoetis), Eldepryl (Somerset)
