  • Pyridostigmine SR Overview

  • How to Use Pyridostigmine SR

    Take Pyridostigmine SR by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor. If you are using the liquid form of Pyridostigmine SR, carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. If you are using the extended-release tablets, take as directed by your doctor, usually 1 to 2 times daily (at least 6 hours apart). Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing. The Dosage of Pyridostigmine SR is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Use Pyridostigmine SR regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day. Do not increase your dose or use Pyridostigmine SR more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. The tablet forms of Pyridostigmine SR may become discolored due to moisture. This does not affect how well the medication works. Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.
