    some medication for humans is the same as that for pets; however, consider the size of an average cat to an average human, I would imagine that human doses would be too much, possibly even harm or kill the cat.  Don't ask advice from amateurs, go to the vet and ask.  And remember, anyone on here or anywhere else on the Internet can post an answer saying: speaking as a vet....  or, I'm a trained....
    Take no notice, go to a practice in real life where you can see and check real credentials on the wall.

    I know, from our vet,  that some meds are ok. But, before you give ANY human meds to a cat, call a vet first. I know you can give Children's Benadryl to a cat, but it's in a SMALL dose. Ask your vet first for sure!
