Libromide Tablets for Dogs contain Potassium Bromide and are used as an anti-epileptic agent for use as an adjunct to phenobarbital in the control of refractory cases of epilepsy in dogs.

  • Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to bromide, or to any of the excipients. Do not use in dogs with severe renal insufficiency.
Special precautions for use in animals:
  • Do not abruptly discontinue therapy as this may precipitate seizures.
  • In renal insufficiency, excretion of bromide is reduced. To prevent bromide accumulation, and a relative overdose of potassium bromide (see Overdose) administer a reduced dose of Libromide and monitor the serum bromide concentration closely.
  • A reduction in chloride intake could cause bromide intoxication (see Interactions).
  • Administration on an empty stomach may induce vomiting.
  • Dogs weighing less than 11 kg cannot be accurately dosed with the recommended initial dose rate of 15 mg/kg twice daily as the minimum dose achievable by division of the Libromide 325 mg tablet is 162.5 mg, see Amounts to be administered and administration route.
  • Potentially severe side effects can be associated with the use of potassium bromide in cats.
