What is Cyproheptadine?
Cyproheptadine is a medication used to treat multiple conditions in animals. In dogs and cats, it is used as an antihistamine and as a treatment for a disease called serotonin syndrome. In cats, it also works as an appetite stimulant. In horses, it may be used to treat head shaking and Cushing's disease.

Who is it for?
It is for dogs, cats, and horses.

What are the benefits?

* Used for the treatment of allergies and asthma in pets, where an antihistamine may be helpful
* Can be used in the management of serotonin syndrome and, in cats, as an appetite stimulant
* In horses, is used as a therapy for headshaking and Cushing's disease

Cyproheptadine is an antihistamine used in the treatment of allergies and atopy in dogs and cats. It is used primarily to treat symptomatic itching. May also be prescribed to treat asthma in cats and as an appetite stimulant. In horses, Cyproheptadine is used to treat head shaking and equine Cushing's disease, also known as pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID).

How does Cyproheptadine work?
As an antihistamine, Cyproheptadine blocks the action of histamine in the body, thus decreasing the inflammation and itching associated with allergies. It also blocks a chemical in the body called serotonin, which is elevated in serotonin syndrome.

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

How is it given?
Cyproheptadine tablets are given orally. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Duration of treatment depends on reason for and response to treatment.

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

What results can I expect?
As an appetite stimulant, antihistamine and treatment for serotonin syndrome, Cyproheptadine will generally start to work within several hours, but several days of therapy may be needed to achieve the full effect. In the treatment of horses, it may take much longer to see an effect (weeks to months).

What form(s) does it come in?
This medication comes in tablet form.
