Were you looking for information about Nortriptyline? Nortrityline is a common misspelling of nortriptyline.
If you have depression, a healthcare provider may prescribe nortriptyline hydrochloride (Pamelor®). Although it is not entirely clear how the medication works, it is believed that nortriptyline helps to keep certain chemicals (serotonin and norepinephrine) in the brain for a longer period.
As with any medication, it is possible to take too much nortriptyline. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop any overdose symptoms, such as seizures, hallucinations, or changes in heart rhythm. Prompt treatment is required to minimize the chance of potentially serious problems from developing.
