Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your situation. Actually apoquel contains a drug which now being considered for use in certain conditions in humans as well, for example this drug is being used for management of a skin condition known as psoriasis. So basically it should NOT cause you any serious side effects especially since you used only a single dose. It does have some side effects in some patients so you just need to watch out for the following over the next 4-6 hours,

Vomiting

Severe abdominal pain

Dizziness

Lightheadedness

Sweating

Heart rate of less than 60 or greater than 140

Blood pressure of less than 90/60

If these develop (which they should not) then proceed to the Er but otherwise a single dose of apoquel usually would not cause a problem in humans.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
