How Supplied


BRISDELLE is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms (VMS) associated with menopause.

Limitation of Use

BRISDELLE is not indicated for the treatment of any psychiatric condition. BRISDELLE contains a lower dose of paroxetine than that used to treat depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The safety and efficacy of this lower dose of paroxetine in BRISDELLE have not been established for any psychiatric condition. Patients who require paroxetine for treatment of a psychiatric condition should discontinue BRISDELLE and initiate a paroxetine-containing medication that is indicated for such use.


Dosage Information

The recommended dosage of BRISDELLE for the treatment of moderate to severe VMS is 7.5 mg once daily, at bedtime, with or without food.

Use of BRISDELLE Before or After a Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor (MAOI)

Wait at least 14 days after discontinuation of an MAOI before initiating therapy with BRISDELLE. Conversely, allow at least 14 days after stopping BRISDELLE before starting an MAOI [see CONTRAINDICATIONS, WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS and DRUG INTERACTIONS].
