Zycortal Suspension is an injectable medication for use as replacement therapy for mineralocorticoid deficiency in dogs with primary hypoadrenocorticism (Addison's disease). This medication replaces the mineralocorticoid hormones only. Zycortal Suspension is an alternative to Percorten-V and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs

Benefits

  • Treats Addison's disease (hypoadrenocorticism) in dogs
  • Subcutaneous injectable medication

Cautions:

For use in dogs only. Not for human use. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children. Consult a physician in case of accidental human exposure. Do not use Zycortal Suspension in pregnant or lactating dogs. Do not use Zycortal Suspension in dogs that have previously had a hypersensitivity reaction to desoxycorticosterone pivalate.

Generic Name:

Desoxycorticosterone pivalate injectable suspension

How to dispense?

Shake the vial vigorously prior to use. Use only according to your veterinarian's instructions. The usual recommended initial dosage is 2.2 mg/kg (1 mg/lb) of your dog's body weight, administered by subcutaneous injection. An interim monitoring veterinary visit is usually required for re-evaluation and to measure the serum sodium/potassium (Na+/K+) ratio approximately 10 days after the first dose. The second dose is usually given approximately 25 days after the first dose, after which your pet will likely be re-evaluated by your veterinarian to measure the serum sodium/potassium (Na+/K+) ratio and recommendations for subsequent doses and long-term management will be made.

Potential side effects of Zycortal Suspension

Possible side effects of Zycortal Suspension include polyuria (excessive urination), polydipsia (excessive thirst), increased blood volume, edema, and cardiac enlargement. Excessive weight gain may indicate fluid retention secondary to sodium retention.

If you miss giving a dose of Zycortal Suspension

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and give the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

Other drugs that will affect Zycortal Suspension

Consult your veterinarian if your pet is currently taking any other medications, including vitamins and supplements. Interactions may occur with insulin, diuretics, digitalis, amphotericin B or potassium-depleting diuretics such as Furosemide (Lasix, Salix).

Zycortal Suspension Directions:

  • Use according to your veterinarian's instructions.
