- Jul 4, 2006Lisa,
I found that over time, all of Pepper's medications & supplements were
upsetting her stomach. SEB soothes the stomach and helps relieve the
discomfort. I mixed a small pinch in with her food and also added a bit of
water since it tends to absorb a lot of water. That way, the food didn't
get too "dry" in comparison to its normal moisture content.
I can't say that it's recommended with specific medications - just that it
helps with the stomach upset that some of them cause.
Since SEB coats the digestive tract, you don't want to give it shortly
before giving medication (about an hour) since it will lessen the amount of
medication that gets absorbed.
I bought mine in bulk from a local health food store. They have a bin of
the Frontier brand and you just take what you want. You can also buy it in

I was digging through some of the posts looking for what this is for
specifically, since Cameron's appetite is way WAY down since he added
diltiazem twice a day to his atenolol. I did get the vet to agree to
keeping him on 7.5 mg 2x/day instead of ramping up to 15 mg - we are
supposed to stay at this dose for a week and reevaluate - apparently
there's another med that may sit better with him. But will Pepcid or
SEB help bring back my guy's appetite?
