I posted in late March about Pergolide and the voluntary recall by the FDA. My friend Patricia sent me an email from a Yahoo! group for Equine Cushings. Pergolide is a commonly used medication for the treatment of Cushings.
First, the group is a great resource for anyone who has a horse with Cushings or Insulin Resistance. When you join, they send you a lot of great information, that I can tell you is hard to find by just searching the web. I am surprised that I didn't find this group (or this information) when I was going through my problems with Precious.
There are very active members on the panel who are researching the FDA recall and who have started petitions to bring attention to the drug manufactuerers that vetrinary compounding of Pergolide is a huge market and to not stop production of the drug.
A recent update is here, but you can find a good background on the story here. Sign the petition. I encourage you to do so, Pergolide saved my horse and I pay $40 a month to treat her to keep her sound and sane. Please support Precious and all of those who have horses with Equine Cushings.
