Cydectin TriclaMox 1 mg/ml + 50 mg/ml Oral Solution for Sheep
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance(s) or to any of the excipient(s).
Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:
- Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.
- Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).
Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
Resistance to macrocyclic lactones has been reported in Teladorsagia in sheep in a number of countries. In 2008, throughout Europe, moxidectin resistance is very rare; it has been reported in a single case involving a levamisole-, benzimidazole and ivermectin-resistant strain of Teladorsagia circumcincta. Resistance to triclabendazole has been reported in Fasciola hepatica in sheep in some European countries. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of parasites, local history of treatments and recommendations on how to use the product under sustainable conditions to limit further selection for resistance to antiparasitic compounds. These precautions are especially important when moxidectin is being used to control resistant strains.
This product should not be used for the treatment of single infections.
In the absence of compatibility studies, this veterinary medicinal product must not be mixed with other veterinary medicinal products.
Signs of overdoses have not been seen at 3 and 5 times the recommended dose. However, if they do occur they should be consistent with the mode of action of moxidectin and/or triclabendazole and would be manifested as transient salivation, depression, drowsiness, ataxia and reduced food intake 8 to 12 hours post-treatment. Treatment is not generally necessary and recovery is generally complete within 1 to 5 days. There is no specific antidote.
