  • Q:

    Is there a preservative used in this suspension? I ask because the current suspension I'm getting has to be refrigerated and this one does not. Can you list the ingredients for the unflavored cisapride suspension 10mg/mL strength?
    Asked on 6/11/2015 by CAMFL from Tampa, FL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      VetRxDirect uses corn oil as the base in the cisapride unflavored suspension. A suspending agent is added to the corn oil to aid in accurate dosing after the bottle is shaken thoroughly immediately prior to administration. The absence of water in the oil based suspension allows the product to be stored at room temperature without added preservatives.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Your prices are so much less expensive than other places, does that mean you buy the medications from countries other than the USA?
    Asked on 6/11/2015 by CAMFL from Tampa, FL, United States

      No, we buy all of our products from distributors in the United States.

  • Q:

    if cisapride liquid gets clumpy and won't shake out is it safe to use?
    Asked on 1/20/2015 by aboabo1 from Dublin, GA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      We would not recommend using this product if it does not shake up to a consistent, uniform suspension. A suspension that does not shake up completely may lead to inconsistent dosing for your pet. The product needs to be shaken vigorously and examined for uniformity prior to drawing the dose each time the medication is given. If you are unsure how long this product has been clumpy and would not shake out completely, we would recommend reordering this product to provide your pet with the most consistent dosing and best possible outcomes. Please consult VetRxDirect if you have further questions on your cisapride suspension.

      Thank you,
      VetRxDirect

    Asked on 12/31/2014 by Roxanne from Charlotte, NC, United States

    • A:

      Roxanne,

      It varies with every pet but fish is probably the most popular. The chicken flavor can be bitter sometimes for cats.

    Asked on 8/19/2014 by cathyhoffee from Oregon, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      This is priced per milliliter, so it is $.49 per milliliter. It does not come in a specific quantity so you can get however much you want in a bottle.

  • Q:

    Our cat has been getting a 2.5 mg cisapride capsule twice a day. What is the equivalent dosage in the liquid form?
    Asked on 9/21/2013 by Gina

    1 answer

    • A:

      Gina,

      The cisapride compounded suspension is also available in a 2.5mg dose per mL. This would be the equivalent to the 2.5mg capsules when one mL is given.

      Thank you,

      VetRxDirect

  • Q:

    It is recommended to use this within 90 days. Is that extended if refrigerated? Thanks
    Asked on 9/8/2013 by Patrick

    1 answer

    • A:

      Patrick,

      We assign a beyond-use-date or expiration date of 90 days after compounding to the cisapride suspensions prepared in an oil base.  There is no way to guarantee the medication will last longer or gain an extended expiration date if refrigerated. We cannot recommend using the medication beyond the assigned expiration date after compounding.

      Thank you,

      VetRxDirect

I purchased product the end of april...stored as directed,and shook as directed.After approx. 6 weeks, -producted had seperated to the point that there was a lump of it in the bottom of the bottle.

I can't recommend ordering over 6 weeks worth at a time, which may throw out the free shipping.

      I ordered this to replace the one I got from my vet thru another pharmacy. This one is mixed with oil, which works better than the other that was mixed with water.I assume that the oil helps to lubercate,making life much easier for kitty.

      Also, delivery was fast!

      Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Cisapride Suspension (Compounded):

      I am pleased with the way this product is working for my cat. He has been on Cisapride for a year now. This is the second order of Ciapride I,ve purchased from VetRxDirect. For some reason it seems to be working better for him than what I was purchasing from a local compounding pharmacy at better than double the price. I am back to twice a day dosing as my vet had originally prescribed instead of three times a day she had increased it to.

      A life-saver

      Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Cisapride Suspension (Compounded):

      I purchase this medication to treat mega colon in my cat. It is one of a few key meds that is keeping her alive and thriving. I have gotten both the capsules and the oral suspension. The suspension is much easier for me to work with and administer. We have had to adjust my cat's dose several times and that is immediately possible with the suspension, but not with the capsules. This is an expensive product, but VetRxDirect was less expensive than a local pharmacy, plus I get free shipping.

      My only issue is that the suspension base is an oil and it is impossible to not end up with the bottle coated in oil. I did have an issue with the bottle's inside cap cracking and leaking, but I called VetRxDirect and they made a note to send me an extra cap with each order. This med was my first suspension where you use an oral syringe to draw the dose through that inside cap and there were no instructions with the order. That is something I wish VetRxDirect would include as an insert.
