ACTIONS- RESERPINE INJECTION (Compare to the active ingredients of Nature Vet Rakelin ) causes a rapid release of the nerve system transmitters norepinephrine and serotonin from bound stores in the brain, subjecting them to rapid destruction by the body's own enzyme, monoamine oxidase (MOA). While "bound" the stores are not available to MOA. Norepinephrine and serotonin have potent effects on the metabolism of the brain. High levels (especially of norepinephrine) cause stimulation of cerebral activity and anxiety. Lowered levels depress cerebral activity resulting in relaxation and calmness. Norepinephrine and serotonin, on release from the bound stores, undergo rapid destruction by MOA. The net depletion of these substances creates the calming and relaxing effects of RESERPINE INJECTION (Compare to the active ingredients of Nature Vet Rakelin ). These effects continue for many days after administration, because levels are restored only slowly.

FORM- Sterile for injection ??? CATEGORY- Sedatives & Calming Agents ??? FOR- Horses, Greyhounds, Dogs, Camels DOSEAGE & ADMINISTRATION - Give RESERPINE INJECTION (Compare to the active ingredients of Nature Vet Rakelin ) by intramuscular injection only. The dose administered must be sufficient to deplete Norepinephrine and Serotonin stores. Because the initial levels of these stores will vary from horse to horse, the veterinarian must be prepared to vary the dose to achieve optimum efficacy. A useful clinical sign is the brief period of diarrhea, which accompanies the initial release of bound Serotonin before its destruction by MOA. This period of increased bowel activity is a reliable indicator that the desired behavioral response should follow.
Adult Horses: 1 - 4 mL weekly, or as directed by a veterinary surgeon. Give by intramuscular injection only. ??? Some veterinarians advise giving 2 - 4 ml on alternate days until desired response is achieved. ??? Then repeat injections of 2 - 4 mL at 4 - 8 day intervals. This dosage regime may be altered to suit the individual animal response. Lack of response is almost always the result of under dosing.
