I am assuming you would like to give it to your cat to keep him/her calm? I would definitely NOT try it without speaking with a veterinarian first. I think animals (tho' we love them like they are our babies and children) are still animals and some things humans take are potentially lethal to the our furry friends. Animals metabolize things differently. When a doctor prescribes something, they take many things into consideration... age, body weight, medical history, allergies... I know veterinarians are expensive $$$$ and you have the best of intentions... I have heard of people giving gravol to their dogs for travelling and motion sickness... but who knows for sure what the risks of doing that are. My 2 indoor cats get extremely stressed when going to the vet... their little hearts beat SO fast and I worry one of them will have a heart attack sometimes. I took them on a 2 hour flight with me before and my vet prescribed a mild tranquilizer for them... I cannot remember the name of the med prescribed, but, I know for a fact it was nothing I have ever seen prescribed to a human person. (I work in the pharmaceutical field) Please do more research and perhaps go to the Vet... or, perhaps you know a naturopath... Is there a Compounding Pharmacy near you? Most compounding pharmacies make medications for pets as well as humans... they can add tuna or liver flavoring to meds that make the taste of them more appealing to an animal. The pharmacists that work at a pharmacy like that may know or in the very least, may be able to look it up for you:)
