If you have depression, a healthcare provider may prescribe nortriptyline hydrochloride (Pamelor®). Nortriptyline is a type of tricyclic antidepressant, and it works by allowing certain chemicals (serotonin and norepinephrine) to stay in the brain for a longer period of time. Before your healthcare provider prescribes the drug, he or she will consider several factors, including your age, other medical conditions you have, and other medications you may be taking.
