How Should Nortriptyline Be Stored?Nortriptyline should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Both the capsules and the oral solution should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?If you do not take your nortriptyline as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if you usually take your dose at night, you may not want to make up the missed dose during the day because of the risk of drowsiness. Also, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
