  • When a dosage of 50 mg/day is reached, stop administration.
Eenrichtingbord.png Start nortriptyline
  • No wash-out period is needed.
  • Start administration of nortriptyline the next day in a normal dosage of 50 mg/day.

  • Both drugs are a TCA with anticholinergic properties, so a switch to a relatively high starting dose can be made.
