My vet talked me into using acepromazine in my cat - NEVER again!
| RPh
I'm a pharmacist and I balked when my vet prescribed acepromazine for travel anxiety in my cat. I really don't think he understands the pharmacology of the phenothiazines or the fact that acepromazine is chemically related to chlorpromazine (Thorazine) formerly used in human psychotic patients. My 9 month cat is very well tempered, gentle, silly, energetic but does not travel well by car. It's not crate anxiety - the cat sleeps in the crate every night, she is just not fond of being in the car when it's moving . We tried meclizine - it did nothing. The vet prescribed gabapentin (Neurontin in humans) and it also did nothing. Then the vet prescribed acepromazine 2.5mg for a 7.5 pound cat. I told the vet I had a bad feeling about this drug for my cat and I asked why they don't use benzodiazipines like alprazolam - the answer was "too much human abuse of that drug". Against my better judgement, I followed the vets advice and administered the acepromazine to the cat. 20 minutes after dosing with acepromazine, the cat started falling over and it's third eyelids became very prominent. It looked like an alien space zombie and acted like one. I put her in the crate for her own safety because she was falling over and a danger to herself. She is normally a highly coordinated and athletic cat. Not after 2.5mg of acepromazine. We had a 35 minute drive and acepromazine did NOTHING to alleviate my cats fear or anxiety. She meowed and whined constantly in her crate. She did not vomit - the only positive from this experience but for 3 hours after the initial dose she was a doped out mess and didn't return to normal until about 6 hours after the 2.5mg. dose which makes sense because the half life of acepromazine is about 3 hours. I KNEW I should not listen to the vet and I blame myself for not pushing harder for a more active agent that truly alleviates stress and doesn't act like a chemical lobotomy for my cat. I'll never use acepromazine for my cat again - the adverse events far outweigh the negligible benefits in my opinion.

Valium switch from Klonopin for Meniers disease and vertigo
| Suzanne ftom
Can you please help me with whether or not I said to Valium. I am allergic to all anti-emetic drugs such as Compazine Phenergan Tigan am Reglan which limits what I can do to control vomiting. Every time I have been hospitalized with vertigo, they have treated me with things such as Ativan and other anti-nausea medications Meclizine I always vomit them all up until they give me Valium which seems to control the vomiting in the anxiety that goes with the vertigo only at that point am I able to keep down the meclizine which is only available in pill form. Also is Valium available informs other then oral.
