Hyperthyroid cat - Problems with Methimazole
My cat was diagnosed as being hyperthyroid about a month ago. She was put on the pill form of Methimazole for 2 weeks & put on weight & seemed healthy for the most part, except she started itching her head a lot. She went in for a checkup & her bloodwork came back fine. So they prescribed the transdermal type of Methimazole. She seemed lethargic at first,now she's not eating at all (been a day & 1/2)& obviously isn't feeling good. I didn't give her the medicine last nite, this a.m. she's drinking water again & is back to being lovable. Still isn't eating but is definitely interested in food again, sniffing it a lot. Not sure what to do. Going to call the vet today & mention the symptoms. The medicine is definitely not agreeing w/ her. Just wondering if anybody else has had this happen & what they did about it.
