Pamelor Dosage: Recommended Amounts

While your appropriate Pamelor dosage cannot really be anticipated in advance, you need to consult with your physician before taking this medication or otherwise making any adjustments to your dosage of Pamelor. This antidepressant medication is available in both liquid and tablet forms. However, only the tablet dosages are listed below. Obviously, you should always consult with your physician if you cannot take your appropriate Pamelor dosage in its tablet form.

Pamelor Dosage for Adults:

Your physician will monitor the effectiveness and dosage of this medication to determine what is the appropriate amount that you can take. Your specific Pamelor dosage may be increased or decreased as necessary. The usual starting dosage of Pamelor is 25 mg three or four times per day. Also, doctors sometimes prescribe it to be taken once a day. Usually, Pamelor is not described at doses over 150 mg per day. Doctors sometimes perform blood tests  to help decide on the best specific dosage for you.

 

Pamelor Dosage for Children:

Pamelor is not usually recommended for use with children as its safety and effectiveness have not been studied well enough to be an established practice. Adolescents however are sometimes given 30 to 50 mg per day in a single dosage or sometimes divided into smaller doses as prescribed by their physicians.

Older Adults- Pamelor Dosage:

The usual Pamelor dosage recommended for older individuals is 30 to 50 mg either in a single dose or divided into smaller doses as prescribed by your physician.
