QUESTION
What ml do I order for my cat? I want the compounded
ANSWERS (1)
The dosage depends on weight and indication. This medication requires a prescription from your veterinarian, who should be able to assist you in the best dose for your cat. Typical doses for a cat are 1-2 mg orally every 12-24 hours. The 5 mg/mL dosage would probably be the most appropriate for your cat; however, the veterinarian would need to authorize this medication and should be able to give you a more exact answer.

What is Cyproheptadine Compounded?

Cyproheptadine Compounded is used as an appetite stimulant for sick cats, including those undergoing chemotherapy. It also is used to treat feline asthma in cats whose condition is not totally controlled by corticosteroids and bronchodilators. Veterinary behaviorists also use cyproheptadine in some cases of inappropriate urine-spraying behavior in cats. In addition, it is used for atopy, which is an allergic response to inhaled substances such as pollen. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Cyproheptadine Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Benefits:

  • Stimulates the appetites of sick cats
  • Treats feline asthma
  • Used for atopy

How it Works:

Cyproheptadine Compounded works by increasing the appetite of cats. It is metabolized by the liver and excreted in the urine. When used as an appetite stimulant it should be noted that it may take two to three days for the drug to reach full effect.

Cautions:

Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. It is not known if cyproheptadine is excreted in milk. Cyproheptadine should be used in pregnant or lactating animals only if the benefits outweigh the risks.

Directions:

  • Give this medication to your pet exactly as your veterinarian prescribes.
  • Cyproheptadine is usually given two or three times a day, around the same time(s) every day.
Tip:

Wash your hands after giving your pet this medication.
