Nuedexta Medication Information

Available by prescription only, NuedextaTM (dextromethorphan and quinidine) is a drug used to treat a neurologic disorder called pseudobulbar affect (PBA). This condition is characterized by sudden, involuntary outbursts of laughing or crying. Because Nuedexta may not be suitable for some people, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and any other medications you are taking before starting treatment with this drug.
 
Nuedexta comes in the form of a capsule and is typically taken once or twice a day. Although most people tolerate it well, this medicine can cause side effects, including diarrhea, dizziness, and vomiting.
 
Because PBA may improve on its own, your healthcare provider may periodically try to take you off Nuedexta to see if you need to continue taking it.
