Product Info:

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.

Side Effects:

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.
