I never want to harm my cat with meds that are supposed to be helping.

Cyproheptadine is okay to give with methamazole. My last HCM cat Luigi also had a bad experience when he was given a tiny dose of Mirtazapine. Although there wasn't anything negative listed on VIN I won't ever use it again either for a cat.
