Wedgewood Pharmacy Responds to Acepromazine Maleate Drug Shortage
Date:7/9/2008

While Acepromazine Maleate (Acepromazine) is on extended backorder from the manufacturer, Wedgewood Pharmacy will compound this preparation into Gourmeds™ (chewable, flavored tablets), capsules and a flavored suspension in the most frequently prescribed strengths. Acepromazine will be available by prescription for veterinary use only.

SWEDESBORO, N.J. (Business Wire EON) July 9, 2008 -- Commonly prescribed for both cats and dogs, Acepromazine is a phenothiazine sedative/tranquilizer. Researchers report that it is used as a preanesthetic agent. When given orally, Acepromazine may prevent motion sickness, often triggered by travel anxiety, or temporarily relieve common allergy symptoms.

A sudden change in the status of what normally is a commercially available medication doesn't have to mean a change in the treatment regimen veterinarians prescribe for their patients."
