Depression Home > Pamilor

Were you looking for information about Pamelor? Pamilor is a common misspelling of Pamelor.
A healthcare provider may prescribe Pamelor® (nortriptyline hydrochloride) to treat the symptoms of depression. It is thought that Pamelor works by helping certain chemicals (norepinephrine and serotonin) stay in the brain longer, which can help relieve the symptoms of depression. The medication comes in a capsule or liquid form that is taken one to four times a day. Because Pamelor can interact with other medications, it is important to tell your healthcare provider about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
