What are the withdrawl symptoms of nortriptyline?

Doctor's Response

Nortriptyline (Pamelor) is a tricyclic anti-depressant.  Abrupt discontinuation (withdrawal) of tricyclic anti-depressants can cause symptoms of restlessness, anxiety, chills, muscle pain, headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting.  Symptoms can be reduced by slowly reducing the dose.
