The first and only FDA-approved oral treatment for postpartum depression you take for 14 days


Take once daily with food

Take ZURZUVAE 1 time daily with fat-containing foods. Speak to your healthcare provider about examples of foods you should eat.

Take in the evening

Take ZURZUVAE exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to take it. Talk to your healthcare provider about the best time to take ZURZUVAE, because it may make you feel drowsy.

You shouldn’t drive a car or do any dangerous activities for at least 12 hours after taking each dose of ZURZUVAE.

Take all 14 days of medication

Even if you start feeling better sooner, it’s important to finish all the medicine you were prescribed unless your healthcare provider instructs you differently.

Some things to keep in mind when starting ZURZUVAE

Take exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to take it

Your healthcare provider may change your dose of ZURZUVAE if you have certain side effects. Do not change dose without talking to your healthcare provider.

Missed a dose?

If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the regular time. DO NOT take extra capsules to make up for the missed dose. Continue taking ZURZUVAE 1 time daily until you complete the rest of your 14-day treatment course.
