Cisapride Suspension Compounded for Cats

Beyond Use Date:

  • Suspension:  It is recommended that this product be used within 80 days with the exception of the cherry flavor which has a 30 day shelf life.

Ease your cat’s constipation with prescription Cisapride. This effective medication stimulates your cat’s intestinal contractions, which helps reduce chronic constipation and other conditions where food and waste materials have stopped moving through the gastrointestinal tract. 

  • Relieves constipation in cats
  • Helps with gastric emptying
  • Mixed into an oral suspension

 

Our Cisapride suspension is a prescription medicine administered orally that stimulates your cat’s intestinal contractions to ease chronic constipation. Cisapride also works on other gastrointestinal conditions and reduces the amount of time it takes for your cat to empty his stomach. 

What you should know about Cisapride Suspension:

  • Give this medication 15 to 30 minutes before a meal.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your cat more medication than directed and don’t skip doses. 
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

How to Use this Medication:

The dosing of this medication is individualized and may vary for each animal.  Follow the instructions from your pet's veterinarian.

  • 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

    1 answer

    • A:

      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,

    can you tell me which flavor the cats like the best...which flavor do you sell the most, thanks
    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.

    It says its only .49Cents is this for one dose … how much is in one bottle
    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 can't recommend ordering over 6 weeks worth at a time, which may throw out the free shipping.

        Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Cisapride Suspension (Compounded):

        Although Cisparide is usually given prior to feeding, the process of administering medication was traumatizing to both us and our cat, Tigger. We now mix with his food per our vet's instruction and cisapride has continued to work well for relief of constipation and/or vomiting associated with megacolon. Previously used lactulose with limited results. Now exclusively use this product, soft food and Miralax for great results. If your cat is suffering from megacolon, I highly recommend you discuss this option with your vet. Just remember to shake before use for proper dosing!

            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!
