Nortriptyline Medication Information

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the medication nortriptyline hydrochloride (Pamelor®) for the treatment of depression in adults. You may also hear this condition referred to as clinical depression or major depression. It is characterized by feelings of sadness, worthlessness, and helplessness, among other things.
In order to determine if nortriptyline is right for you, your healthcare provider needs information on any other medications you are taking, including nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements, as well as a complete medical history. If you have diabetes, glaucoma, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, for example, nortriptyline may not be the best medicine for your situation.
