  • Q:

    Has this gel form of medication been used for treatment of kidney stones (cats in acute renal failure)? If so, is this administered orally or massaged on the skin?
    Asked on 5/15/2015 by NewarkPro4 from Lincoln University, PA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Oral amitriptyline has been used to treat pain and decrease the symptoms of bladder infection and lower urinary tract infections in cats. The absorption of amitriptyline is more consistent when taken by mouth, so the transdermal gel is usually reserved when amitriptyline cannot be administered orally. Subjective improvement of behavioral symptoms in cats have been reported by pet owners administering transdermal amitriptyline. Speak with your veterinarian to determine if transdermal amitriptyline would be an appropriate option for your cat.

  • Q:

    Is each daily dosage of the amitriptyline transdermal gel, regardless of strength over $6 per day if given once a day? It would cost over $200 per month with tax and all. Correct? 
    Asked on 4/4/2015 by Abby11 from Augusta, Arkansas, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      No, normally transdermal gel syringes last people around 10 days. Each syringe is a 1mL syringe but the dosage is a little different. Say you were giving 5mg a day, you would get the 5mg/0.01mL syringe and you would give 0.01mL a day, so that 1mL syringe would last you 10 days. So for a month supply, it would cost around $20.

  • Q:

    My cat is currentlyprescribed amitriptyline 5mg/0.05ml daily.  I am currently using Twist-a-Dose by Wedgewood pharmacy.   It is much more expensive than what I see listed on this site.   Is your formulation the same?    Also, how many doses are included?
    Asked on 12/28/2014 by kfuemmel from Bloomington, IL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Compounded medication can vary from pharmacy to pharmacy therefore it is not possible to know if the formulation will have the same look, color and texture as the product you are currently using. VetRxDirect lists the strength of amitriptyline as 10mg/0.1ml (this is equivalent to 5mg/0.05ml) and is dispensed in 1ml amber syringes. Each 1ml amber syringe will have 10 doses of medication if you are instructed to use 0.1ml of volume per dose or 20 doses if your veterinarian instructs you to administer 0.05ml per dose.

      Thank you,

Best Way to Give Meds to a Difficult Cat

Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Amitriptyline Transdermal Gel (Compounded):

I call my cat "Crazy Louie" for a reason, but his anxiety had gotten out of control. When the vet prescribed amitriptyline for him I knew there was no way I could give him a pill daily. A little internet research brought me to vetrxdirect. They were great in getting the info from my vet and the customer service is excellent. Giving Louie his medicine this way is a breeze. Ordering refills is super easy. And I'm happy to report that the medicine has been a miracle for my "special needs" kitty - he is doing SO MUCH better!

Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Amitriptyline Transdermal Gel (Compounded):

Although it is impossible to comment whether the mixture they put together is as it should be they do get things do quickly and efficiently. They contact the Vet quickly to get things started. Takes them awhile to find the Vet's fax so they can proceed.

Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Amitriptyline Transdermal Gel (Compounded):

Fastest, easiest way to order pet meds. Just fill out the form and let them contact the doc to get things sent in. They even included 5 finger cots with the gel which I thought was especially nice.�
Wish I could say more for the product..I've been using this on a super feral cat and we're in the early stages. MUCH easier than pilling a cat though! Whew!
