4.5 Special precautions for use

Special precautions for use in animals

Because phenylpropanolamine is a sympathomimetic agent, it may affect the cardiovascular system, especially blood

pressure and heart rate, and therefore should be used with caution in animals with cardiovascular diseases.

Care should be exercised in treating animals with severe renal or hepatic insufficiency, diabetes mellitus,

hyperadrenocorticism, glaucoma or other metabolic disorders.

In bitches less than 1 year old the possibility of anatomical disorders contributing to incontinence should be considered

prior to treatment.

Special precautions for the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

People with known hypersensitivity to phenylpropanolamine should avoid contact with the veterinary

medicinal product.

Phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride is toxic when overdoses are ingested. Adverse effects may include

dizziness, headache, nausea, insomnia or restlessness, and increased blood pressure. High overdose may be

fatal, especially in children.

To avoid accidental ingestion the product must be used and kept out of the sight and reach of children.

Always replace the cap firmly after use to ensure that the child resistant closure operates correctly.

In the event of accidental ingestion, seek immediate medical attention showing the doctor the package leaflet.

Contact with eyes and skin should be avoided.

In the event of accidental skin contact, wash the contaminated area with soap and water. Wash hands after use

of the product.

Redness and irritation may develop after eye or skin contact with the product.

In the event of accidental eye contact, rinse the eye with clean water for about 15 minutes and seek medical

advice.

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

In some dogs, loose stools, liquid diarrhoea, a decrease in appetite, arrhythmia and collapse have been reported

following treatment with phenylpropanolamine. Occasional nausea and vomiting have also been reported. Treatment

was continued depending on the severity of the undesirable effect observed.

As phenylpropanolamine is a sympathomimetic agent it is possible to produce a wide range of effects most of which

mimic the results of excess stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system (e.g. effects on the heart rate and blood

pressure).

Dizziness and restlessness were also occasionally reported.

Hypersensitivity may occur in very rare cases.

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Do not use in pregnant or lactating bitches.

4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Care should be exercised in administering the product with other sympathomimetic drugs, anticholinergic drugs,

tricyclic antidepressants or specific type B monoamine oxidase.

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route

For oral administration.

0.8 mg/kg body weight phenylpropanolamine (equivalent to 1 mg/kg phenylpropanolamine HCl) three times daily in

the feed, corresponding to 0.1 ml Urilin syrup/5 kg body weight three times daily.

1 drop for every 2.34 kg body weight three times daily in feed.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary

In healthy dogs, no side effects were observed at up to 5 times the recommended dose. However an overdose could

produce signs of excessive stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system.

Treatment should be symptomatic. Alpha-adrenergic blockers may be appropriate in the case of severe overdose.

However, no specific recommendation on drugs or dosages can be given.

4.11 Withdrawal Period(s)

Not applicable.

5 PHARMACOLOGICAL or IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride is a sympathomimetic agent.

ATCvet Code: QG04BX91

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Sympathetically innervated smooth muscles play a role in urethral closure, and both the

receptors are present.

receptors play a role in urethral closure while

receptors innervate relaxation. The smooth muscle extends to the

mid-urethra in females. The clinical effect of phenylpropanolamine is based on its stimulation effects on

-adrenergic

receptors.

This causes an increase in, and stabilisation of, the closure pressure in the urethra, which is innervated

mainly by the adrenergic nerves.

Phenylpropanolamine is a racemic mixture of D and L enantiomers.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties

In the dog, the mean half-life of phenylpropanolamine is approximately 3 hours with maximal plasma concentrations

being found after approximately 4 hours. No accumulation of phenylpropanolamine has been observed after a dose of 1

mg/kg 3 times daily over 15 days.
