Nortriptyline hydrochloride (Pamelor®) is an antidepressant that is available by prescription. Although it is not entirely clear as to how the medication works, it is believed that nortriptyline helps to alleviate the symptoms of depression by causing certain chemicals in the brain (norepinephrine and serotonin) to stay in the brain longer. Nortriptyline is available as a capsule or in a liquid form, and it is taken one to four times a day. Some potential side effects of nortriptyline include dizziness, drowsiness, and confusion.
