The cough tablets do not require a prescription, however, before starting any over-the-counter medication or supplement, you should consult your pet's veterinarian to ensure it is the best option for your pet.
The inactive ingredients in the cough tablets are proprietary information and as such, the manufacturer has declined to share them. The manufacturer has, however, checked the formula and assured that there is no sugar contained in the cough tablets.
My ten year old toy poodle is taking Vetmedin twice daily, Benazepril 1/2 tablet once daily, Salix 1/2 tablet twice daily and Sildenafil 0.5 ml twice daily. How would this cough med interact with these meds. Thank you Patricia
Cough tablets are indicated for symptomatic relief of a cough. Cough tablets will not affect the underlying condition. When taken as directed, there will be no drug interactions or contraindications with the medications listed. You should always check with your veterinarian prior to beginning cough tablets. Noticeable symptoms, such as an increased cough, may indicate changes in the underlying condition in which your veterinarian may choose to adjust medication therapy to get the maximum benefit.
I am wondering the side effects. My vet has prescribed this medication. She is acting very out of character. She is normally very friendly and likes being around us. She continues to go and hide and sometimes acts scared, like someone is going to hurt her.
The behavioral changes you are noticing are not considered normal for the Cough Tablets. Side effects at proper doses are usually minor and minimize over time. We would recommend contacting your veterinarian to discuss these changes and if a modification to treatment is necessary.
