Re: Compounded Pergolide instead of Prascend
I deal with Island Pharmacy and they are awesome. It took time to wrap my head around the strength difference after we discussed it three ways between vet and pharmacy and me. Basically 1 mg of compounded pergolide mesylate delivers 0.7 mg of the prascend equivalent due to the compounding ingredient.
I increased Jewel to 2mg of prascend and when i transitioned to compounded it scripted out at 3mg of compounded which is actually the same as 2.1 mg of prascend. Hope this makes sense.
