My Ghost was on Clomicalm, when he move in. He clearly got some serious issues (separation anxiety, stress disorder etc.). That's why he moved in with me, to be on more quieter environment. At his previous home, he had been peeing, teasing the other cats etc. and made the life intolerable.
At my place I was able to quit the medication (which was the plan). I'm not saying that is wrong medicating a cat - on the contrary you should do what ever you can to ease your cat's stress, but it just didn't suit Ghost. The meds made his very sleepy and lazy and he had stopped washing himself. It was terrible thing to watch.
The symptoms came partly back every time something disturbed him, so I cleaned pee and poo on beds and sofas, and listened his whining.
Still Ghost got 11 happy months with me, before his kidneys suddenly failed. He might be gone, but never forgotten.
