Re: Transitioning from prascend to compounded pergolide
How did your vet send the prescription in to Wedgewood? If it was written as 2mg of pergolide as pergolide mesylate it's equivalent to 2 Prascend. If it was not written that way it will be less.
You can reference this post: Amount of pergolide in compounded capsules vs Prascend as well as this one: Re: Switching from Prascend to CP
As far as the sweating - that may be an indication that his PPID isn't as controlled as it should be so I would suggest bloodwork now rather than waiting until March and adjusting his dose of pergolide accordingly. Cyproheptadine is an old treatment for PPID and from what I've read not a very reliable one. You can read one study on it comparing it to using pergolide here: Treatment with Pergolide or Cyproheptadine of Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction (Equine Cushing's Disease)
