Pristiq dosages: How much is too much?


Pristiq dosage: An Overview

While your specific Pristiq dosage will need to be determined by your physician, he or she will usually initiate and maintain your dosage within the range of the normal guidelines for this antidepressant medication. This information will provide you the basic  Pristiq dosage guidelines that are usually recommended in most circumstances. Depending on your condition, your physician may prescribe a different regimen. You should never change your specific dosage or stop taking this antidepressant without discussing your circumstances with your doctor.

Pristiq dosage: Adults

The recommended dosage for Pristiq is usually 50 mg taken once a day with or without food. If you have poorly functioning kidneys or liver, your doctor may prescribe a different amount.


What should I tell my doctor before I take Pristiq?

You should always tell your doctor about any prescription medications, over-the-counter or herbal medicines before beginning this or any medication. Also, you should give your doctor a complete medical history, especially if you have a history of heart problems, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, glaucoma, history of stroke, kidney or liver problems, problems with bleeding, convulsions or seizures, mania or bipolar disorder, or if you have low sodium levels.

Pristiq dosage: How should I take this medication?

Your Pristiq dosage should be taken the same time each day. You may take it with or without food. Tablets should be taken whole and should not be chewed, crushed, dissolved or divided. When you take Pristiq, you may see something in your stool that looks like the tablet. This is usually the empty shell for the medicine once your tablet has been absorbed into your system. You should not worry about it and just continue your usual Pristiq dosage as recommended by your physician until he/she tells you not to.
