Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
We offer affordable tapering programs to help you withdraw from Nortriptyline
Nortriptyline is a second-generation tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) that is used to treat major depression and childhood bedwetting. Nortriptyline is the active metabolite of Amitriptyline and exerts its action on both Norepinephrine and to a lesser degree, Serotonin with a negligible effect on Dopamine.
Norepinephrine is both a hormone and neurotransmitter. As a hormone secreted by the adrenal gland it works on the ‘flight or fight’ response. As a neurotransmitter Norepinephrine helps to regulate arousal, dreaming and mood. Serotonin acts as both a chemical messenger that transmits nerve signals and causes the blood vessels to narrow, but it also plays an important role in sleep, mood, memory, cardiovascular activity and appetite. It’s the combined affect of Nortriptyline on multiple neurotransmitters that cause the systemic side effects and potential for withdrawal symptoms, particularly with an abrupt discontinuation.
While Nortriptyline is marketed as non-addictive, a discontinuation syndrome (Nortriptyline withdrawal symptoms) has been frequently reported. Dosage should be gradually tapered to minimize Nortriptyline withdrawal symptoms. Let our non-profit help you.
