EpiRepress 60mg tablets for Dogs contain 60mg Phenobarbital

EpiRepress tablets can be divided into halves or quarters

Indications for use: EpiRepress is used for the prevention of seizures due to generalised epilepsy in dogs. Do not use EpiRepress in the case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any other barbiturates or to any of the excipients. Do not use EpiRepress in animals with severe impaired hepatic function.

The recommended starting dose of EpiRepress is 2.5mg phenobarbital per kg body weight, administered twice daily. Any adjustments to this dose are best made on the basis of clinical efficacy, blood concentrations and the occurrence of undesired effects. The phenobarbital serum concentration considered to be therapeutically active is between 20‑40 μg/ml. Steady state serum concentrations are not reached until 1‑2 weeks after treatment is initiated. The full effect of EpiRepress occurs approximately after 2 weeks, and doses should not be increased during this time. The phenobarbital serum concentration may be checked after steady state has been achieved, If it is less than 20 μg/ml and/or seizures are not being controlled, the dosage may be increased by 20 % at a time, with associated monitoring of serum phenobarbital levels. If seizures recur, the dose may be increased to a maximum serum concentration of 40 μg/ml. High plasma concentrations may be associated with hepatotoxicity. The tablets can be divided into halves or quarters to ensure accurate dosing.

Epirepress tablets can be quartered by pressing on the flat, scored upper side of the tablet with a finger or thumb. The domed, scored lower side of the tablet should be on a firm surface. Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary Symptoms Overdosage with EpiRepress may result in coma, severe respiratory and cardiovascular depression, hypotension and shock leading to renal failure and death
