Nuedexta

Clinical Effects

In clinical studies, people who took Nuedexta for 12 weeks had fewer involuntary episodes of crying and laughing during the study period than people who took a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients). Some people noticed an improvement within as little as a week. Half of all the people taking Nuedexta did not experience any episodes during the last two weeks of the study.
 

When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Nuedexta include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in capsule form. It is usually taken by mouth once or twice a day.
 
  • Nuedexta can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
 
  • Try to take your doses at the same time each day to keep an even level of the medication in your bloodstream.
 
  • Your healthcare provider may periodically try to take you off this medication. This is because pseudobulbar affect sometimes improves on its own, and you may no longer need the medication.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
 

Dosing Information

There is only one standard recommended dosage for this medication, regardless of your age or weight. As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
