our 17 year old cairn terrier has been on Apoquel for 4 mos. the itching, decreased but never stopped. He has been lethargic, urinating more then usual. He has urinated in front of me, also not wanting to stay outside, or even go outside. which is causing more messes to clean up. He has had two seizures which he has never had his whole life. I believe it is the medication that has caused them. He takes mg. tablets, we decreased it to 1/2, he is still having all the symptoms I have described but the seizures started at 1/2 the dose. I am very much convinced Apoquel has caused the seizures.
I’ve been fighting shingles now for 6 weeks and I’m still suffering from pain where the shingles blisters were located. I started 15 billion probiotics midway thru this and was feeling better. I was taking 5 billion 3 times a day. A friend coaxed me to bump it up to 20 billion. So I did this and by the 3rd day I had a rash all over my head. I’ve since stopped and the rash has gone away. I really want to go back on it, but now I’m stuck with 20 billion capsules. Any ideas on breaking these capsules in half to take half in the morning then again at night? Or should I wait til after this shingle pain goes away? I’m sure I’m in toxic overload with having fibromyalgia and type 2 diabetes. What would u suggest I do? Thank you.
