Cyproheptadine belongs to a class of drugs known as antihistamines. Histamines are chemicals that are released in the body in response to inflammation or allergies. When histamines attach to H-1 receptors in the body, it causes the blood vessels to widen which leads to swelling and itchiness. Antihistamines block histamines, leading to a reduction in inflammation and itchiness. Cyproheptadine has an anti-serotonin effect.


Dogs and Cats

How it works

Cyproheptadine is used to treat multiple conditions in dogs and cats that include allergies and allergic reactions, appetite stimulant (in cats), and Cushing’s disease. Cyproheptadine also has an anti-serotonin effect. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain that when suppressed, can lead to an increase in appetite.

Allergic reactions and serious side effects are rare, but in the case of an allergic reaction or a serious side effect seek immediate veterinary attention. Some common signs of allergic reactions and serious side effects are hives, breathing difficulty, facial swelling.
