How does Zonisamide Capsules work?

The exact action in which Zonisamide for dogs and cats affects the body is unknown. However, Zonisamide is believed to block sodium channels in the brain, reducing nerve cell activity ensuring they don't fire irregularly. Zonisamide Capsules can also alter the calcium levels in the brain.

Cautions:

Don't give to pets who are allergic to similar medication or to sulfa drugs (sulfonamides). Additionally, consult with your veterinarian if your pet has liver or kidney disease. Do not give to breeding, pregnant or lactating pets. Keep Zonisamide out of the reach of children.

What is the most important thing I should know about Zonisamide Capsules?

Zonisamide for dogs and cats is a sulfonamide drug and shouldn't be used in patients that are allergic to sulfa drugs. Due to the risk of birth defects, it should also be avoided in pregnant, breeding, or lactating pets. Talk to your veterinarian to determine the accurate dosage for your pet. It is crucial to follow their exact instructions when administering Zonisamide to your pet. Do not stop giving Zonisamide suddenly and make sure to be consistent when giving your pet Zonisamide. Missed doses may trigger a seizure in your pet. Zonisamide Capsules can increase the level of acid in your pet's blood (metabolic acidosis). If left untreated, metabolic acidosis can cause brittle or soft bones (osteoporosis, osteomalacia, osteopenia) and kidney stones. Metabolic acidosis can occur with or without symptoms.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Zonisamide Capsules to my pet?

Consult with your veterinarian if your pet is older or has liver or kidney disease.

How should Zonisamide Capsules be given?

Zonisamide should be administered orally once or twice per day. Make sure the capsule is swallowed whole. Zonisamide can be taken with or without food. Consult with your veterinarian what the right dosage is for your pet.

What are the potential side effects of Zonisamide Capsules?

One of the most common adverse reactions to Zonisamide is short-term sedation. Other side effects of Zonisamide may include loss of appetite, weight loss, and nausea. Long-term effects of the medication remain unknown.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Zonisamide Capsules?

Administer the next dose as soon as you remember. Never administer two doses of Zonisamide at once.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Zonisamide Capsules?

Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

What should I avoid while giving Zonisamide Capsules to my pet?

Do not give to pets that are breeding, pregnant or lactating, as it may cause birth defects. Also, do not give to pets that are hypersensitive to sulfonamides.

What other drugs will affect Zonisamide Capsules?
