My 12 year old Norwich Terrier is receiving two 5mg tablets of Selegiline (the generic version of Anipryl) daily for behavioral/Cushings-like symptoms. My vet says I should administer the Selegiline once each day because those are the instructions that come with Anipryl. Would there be any advantage, or disadvantage, in splitting the dosage to one tablet twice a day? Wouldn't this even out the effects of the medication in the same way that Phenobarbital is given several times daily for Epilepsy rather than all at once?
No, this medication is given once a a day for a reason and perferrable in the am. vetcare
