Methimazole Tablets is used for the treatment of hyperthyroidism in cats by lowering the production of thyroid hormones. It does not cure the disease, but helps control hyperthyroidism if given for the rest of the cat's life.

Contraindications: Do not use in cats with hypersensitivity to methimazole, carbimazole, or the excipient, polyethylene glycol. Do not use in cats with primary liver disease, renal failure, autoimmune disease, hematological disorders, or coagulopathies. Do not use in pregnant or lactating queens.
Active ingredient:Methimazole

Store at controlled room temperature 25°C (77°F) with excursions between 15°-30°C (59°-86°F) permitted. Keep the container tightly closed in order to protect from moisture.
Safety depends on correct dosage and administration, exactly as your veterinarian prescribed. Tell your veterinarian about other health conditions your pet has or medications they may be taking.

Side Effects:
Most side effects occur within the first year of therapy. Side effects may include change in food consumption, lethargy, diarrhea/loose stool, vomiting, loss of appetite, skin conditions & sores and anemia.

Human Warnings: Not for use in humans. Wash hands with soap and water after administration to avoid exposure to drug. Do not break or crush tablets. Wear protective gloves to prevent direct contact with litter, feces, urine, or vomit of treated cats, and broken or moistened tablets. Wash hands after contact with the litter of treated cats.

Methimazole is a human teratogen and crosses the placenta concentrating in the fetal thyroid gland. There is also a high rate of transfer into breast milk. Pregnant women or women who may become pregnant, and nursing mothers should wear gloves when handling tablets, litter or bodily fluids of treated cats.

Animal Warnings: For oral use in cats only. May cause serious effects on liver, blood and immune systems. Use extreme caution in animals with anemia, liver diseases or any immune problems. Not for use in animals that are hypersensitive to methimazole.

May be used in pregnant animals, but use extreme caution as it may cause thyroid problems in the babies. After receiving colostrum, kittens should be placed on a milk replacer to lessen absorption of methimazole.

Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Product Reviews
By: Kathryn Sawicki
From: Milwaukee, WI
The product is fine. My only complaint is that when I sent in the prescription from the doctor, I know that it had 2 refills on it. When I called about this, the person I spoke with said she would have to check with the people in the pharmacy. She called me back the next day and said they had checked with the doctor and there should be no refills. Now I don't know what to believe, because I saw for myself that he had written a "2" (sloppy though it was) in the refill section. Now, when I need a refill, I will have to get another prescription from the doctor and mail it in. My vet will not e-mail any prescriptions. Oh well. But, other than that experience, I have no complaints. Your prices are very reasonable. Thank you.

Hyper Thyroid Tablets - Methimazole
By: David Fine
From: Kansas City Area
These tablets are absolutely awesome. They turned my cats emaciated look around and saved him from shear death. He is still a skinny cat but he looks much more healthy and does not have a gaunt look now. He is also much more amenable to play and wants as much attention as I'll give him. Before he was sickly and did not want to be bothered. I highly recommend this product for hyper thyroid in cats!!

The methimazole tablets are the same as I can get at my veterinarian's office. Revival offers this medication at a far cheaper cost. The turn around rate from whether I phone my order in or order online is very quick. All customer reps I have spoken to on the phone are informative and very helpful.
best deal in town
By: mountain mama
From: West Virginia
I bought this a year ago because they had the best price by far. I will place another order today or tomorrow for another year. MollyCat has done very well on this product from revival so it is as good as the stuff some places are charging $45.00 a bottle for. Check prices and you will be back here. I promise. I have dealt with Revival for a few years and always found them to be top drawer with everything they sell. the customer assistants are nice people.
