lovely just lovely, ketaconazole and cyclosporine can cause drug/drug interactions. and she has to be on both.. uggh. back to the vet to discuss this with him on what to do ..

What other drugs will affect Atopica: There are many drug/drug interactions that occur when taking Atopica. Tell your veterinarian what medications your pet is currently using and any new products, including herbal remedies you may start to give. Drug/drug interactions could cause a decrease in effectiveness or an increase in side effects of either Atopica or the other medication being given. Examples of medications that may cause drug/drug interactions are; SMZ-TMP (Bactrim, Septra), gentamicin, etodolac (EtoGesic), piroxicam (Feldene), ketoconazole (Nizoral), cimetidine (Tagamet), ranitidine (Zantac), itraconoazole (Sporanox), methylprednisolone (Medrol), erythromycin, Allopurinol (Zyloprim), metoclopramide (Reglan), prednisOLOne, digoxin (Lanoxin), any type of vaccination.

yes, she has to be on them or her allergies will keep flaring up, and eventually her right ear will need surgery too.

Yikes. Let me know what the doc says, but I am not going to freak out yet, do you think both of our vets would have prescribed both drugs for both dogs if it was that bad, I sure hope not? Plus maybe they just have to put that to save their butt if it happened again. Where did you find that info?

I FOUND THE info on the site when i looked up the drug, if you go to the drug itself it says the pros/cons/side effects etc.. i called my vet he ssaid that all drugs have to label the side effects and that they could possibly interact with other drugs...he said its ok that they are both being given together

I thought the chances of both our vets giving both meds at the same time, that they probably wouldn't hurt them, but its nice to be sure. Thoughts and prayers that your next visit go well :hug:

well jesse is now enrolled in Walgreens drug program... my vet said he will give me a year prescription every year with 3-4 refills per year so i only have to go the hour away a few times a year.. he was very interested in their program and plans on looking into it as well..

we get our ID cards in a few weeks, but i printed out her temporary ID card to use for now..
