Methimazole Tablets

Methimazole is an antithyroid medication used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism in cats. Methimazole is also used to protect the kidneys in dogs receiving the anti-cancer drug cisplatin.

Hyperthyrodism is a condition in which too much thyroid hormone is produced. Methimazole will not cure this disease, but it's given to control the condition for the rest of the cat's life.

Dosage:
It is commonly accepted for veterinarians to use human labeled Tapazole or other brands of methimazole in cats. The usual dose in cats is 5mg per cat every 8-12 hours. Blood tests are repeated every 3-4 weeks until the proper maintenance dose is reached, then blood testing is repeated every 3-6 months. The medication is needed for life. If the medication is discontinued, the symptoms will reappear.

Side effects
Side effects of methimazole may include lack of appetite, vomiting, rash, hives, itching, edema and drowsiness
