Compounded pergolide


Hello, has anyone tried the chewable pergolide tabs that Wedgewood Pharmacy offers?

The stability of the chewables has not been as long as the capsules in the group's experience.


Hi Toni,
I've used Wedgewood's Gourmeds chewable tablet several times. The tablets made it easy to adjust doses when needing to increase Pergolide to keep up with ACTH results. Stability isn't as long as capsules as previously mentioned. Sometimes the bottles didn't contain any packing material at the top, resulting in many broken tablets. One time it was between a third to a half of the bottle. Some horses don't like the standard flavor (apple or molasses if I remember correctly). I couldn't blame them as I got sick of the scent after a while.

Hi Toni,

I also tried the Gourmeds chewables thinking it would solve the problem of Relevante not wanting to take his meds. He would not touch them in any way shape or form. So I went back to the compounded capsule. Now that we wrap the capsule in a small ball of hay and feed it to him before he gets anything else in the morning it is working like a charm and has for the last year and a half. [Almost afraid to say that out loud].
