As cats reach their middle and older ages, they sometimes develop what’s known as hyperthyroidism. This is an increase in your cat’s metabolic rate caused by an excessive increase of thyroid hormones. If your cat starts experiencing weight loss, excessive thirst and urination, diarrhea, shedding, and/or hyperactivity, consult your veterinarian and find out if Rx Methimazole is the right solution. Rx Methimazole is a tablet medication for cats designed to counter this condition. The tablet prevents the development of excessive T3 and T4 hormones, therefore reducing their metabolic rate to a steadier level.
Possible Side Effects
Side effects usually occur during the first three months of treatment. They may include loss of appetite, vomiting, and lethargy. These typically occur within the first two weeks of treatment and may eventually stop even with continuation of treatment. Less common side effects are yellowing of the gums, skin, or eyes (jaundice) which may signify liver problems. Itching of the face, scratching, or increased bleeding tendencies may occur.
