* Helps to relieve behavior problems associated with anxiety
* Amitriptyline tablets are available in multiple prescription strengths

Amitriptyline treats anxiety disorders, such as separation anxiety in dogs. It is also used to treat excessive-compulsive grooming behaviors, urine spraying and anxiety disorders in cats. Amitriptyline is a prescription antidepressant that may also be prescribed as an adjunct to other treatments for excessive scratching or other self-destructive behaviors.

Behavior modification medications are used to help treat behavior problems in pets. In almost all cases, the drug alone will not be sufficient and specific training techniques will need to be used. In some cases, your veterinarian may determine that the medication can be stopped when the behavior improves.

How does Amitriptyline work?
Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant prescribed to treat certain pet anxiety disorders. Tricyclic antidepressants (TCA) work in the brain by changing the normal function of the chemicals serotonin and norepinephrine, which help communication between nerves. Use Amitriptyline in conjunction with behavior modification exercises for the most effective approach to treat anxiety and other pet behavior disorders.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
This is a generic medication.

How is it given?
Amitriptyline tablets are given by mouth. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

Do not suddenly stop giving the medication unless advised by your veterinarian.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
Amitriptyline, by itself, may not cure a behavior problem, but will help manage the symptoms. It should be used in combination with techniques to try to change the unwanted behavior. It generally takes several weeks to reach an effective level in the body.

What form(s) does it come in?
