Description

Prascend, also known as Pergolide, is used for the control of clinical signs associated with Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction (Equine Cushing’s Disease) in horses. Each Prascend Tablet contains 1 mg pergolide mesylate. 

Details

Prascend is the only FDA-approved treatment available to manage PPID in horses. FDA-approval demonstrates the product has met the safety and efficacy requirements to obtain an FDA approval. Decreased appetite was the most common adverse reaction reported in the study.

Administer

Horses were given Prascend tablets containing 1.0 mg of pergolide, as pergolide mesylate. The target starting dosage for each animal was 2mcg of Prascend per kg of body weight. If endocrine test results remained abnormal at study Day 90, the target dosage was increased to 4mcg/kg.
