This was prescribed to my grandson which is 3 1/2 and weighs 24lbs. he was born at 30 weeks and has always been very small. This med was awful for him. He would sit to play and his head would fall over. He was jerky and unresponsive. Please do your research before giving this to small children

My cat has IMHA and lost a ton of weight. The vet recommended this drug and it has been wonderful. She was on 1/4 of a tablet but her weight is starting to drop so we are upping it to a 1/2 of a tablet. It was doing great before but I am hoping she has just built up a tolerance. It also helped her allergies (she use to pull her hair out but not anymore!) :)

This medication has really helped me. My appetite has really improved. I am always hungry. I have gained 5 lbs in a week! Besides the sleepiness, this pill is great. I rest so much better. On weekends, all I do is eat and sleep.
