Also what side effects should be expected?
Hello, it helps you with depression, headaches and to sleep. It is a great antidepressant. I think you will find it a good med . You didn't say what dose you on. That makes a difference. Best of luck to you. God bless!
I have been on 75mgs for 3 weeks when does it fully kick in.
"Usual Adult Dose for Depression
25 mg orally 3 to 4 times per day
-Maximum dose: 150 mg/day
-The total daily dosage may be given once a day.
-Patients should be started at lower doses, and the doses should be gradually increased."
"How long does it usually take for nortriptyline to work?
Patients may report effects 2 weeks after beginning the medication, but it can take up to 2 months to achieve its full effect."
If you're not seeing some positive response, even if it's slight, let your doctor know. You may need a dosage increase.
