NAME OF THE MOLECULE:
Prazosin hydrochloride belongs to the class of adrenergic alpha-1 antagonists. It is an arterial and venous vasodilator, which means that it increases the caliber of the arteries and veins to facilitate blood flow. It also reduces blood pressure and peripheral vascular resistance which contributes to easing the blood flow as well.
It is used for congestive heart failure particularly when it is secondary to a mitral valve or aortic valve failure. In dogs, this medication is also used to treat systemic hypertension or pulmonary hypertension.
Do not use, unless advised by a veterinarian, if your pet suffers from chronic renal failure or a condition leading to hypotension or if he belongs to a breed in the Colley family.
It is possible to observe lethargy, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation or hypotension. If your pet presents any adverse effects, that worsen or persist, contact your veterinarian immediately.
It is important to observe whether the condition of your pet improves and if he presents any side effects. It is also strongly recommended to do a follow up with your veterinarian to, among other things, evaluate the blood pressure.
INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER MEDICATION:
Do not use novo-prazin, unless advised by a veterinarian, if your pet takes a beta-blocking agent, clonidine, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, nifedipine, sildenafil or verapamil.
Store at room temperature in a well sealed container.
If possible, give this medication with food. It is important to follow the veterinarian’s instructions to have beneficial results. Respect the expiration date of the product because an expired product may be less effective or potentially dangerous for the health of your pet. *Keep out of the reach of children and animals.*
