Hello, good morning everyone.. someone uses nortripitiline, because I use this medication for about 5 years or so, I have used 125 mg, I am currently using 75 mg, at the moment I am trying to make a weaning by myself, I take one day and then I am not taking about 6 days, I am doing so, I feel good at the moment, just a slight sensation of my psychologist, and sexual function, please could someone guide me, because my psychiatrist does not help me..Thank you waiting for some answer.

Hello  Texmax   and welcome to SA.

 

This site is run entirely by volunteer Administrators and Moderators, all have been through or going through withdrawal.

There are no commercial interests or influences  involved .

 

I am having a problem understanding your post.

Is the following correct:

You were taking Nortriptiline for 5 years at a dose of 125mgs.

When did you start to reduce your dose?

Did you reduce slowly or straight from 125mgs to 75mgs?

Welcome, texmax.

 

Please do not skip doses of the drug to taper! If I were you, I'd take 50mg every day at the same time.

 

Let your nervous system rest for a month or so.  Please let us know how you're doing.

 

If no problems, you might then consider tapering further

Thank you very much for answering, I was very excited to know that I am with people who understand the subject, sorry for the writing, but I have to play on google translator, to communicate, I will do the following take the dose of 75 mg during a month, then reduce 10% to see what happens, I will keep you informed .. thank you from the heart ..

 

ado a vcs, por me responderem, fico (adored by you for answering me i'm)

I suggested 50mg per day because, having taken the drug inconsistently, you might find 75mg per day too stimulating. It may take more than a month for your nervous system to settle down. I would not try tapering again for a while. Please tell us how you're doing.

Sugeri 50 mg por dia porque, tendo tomado o medicamento de forma inconsistente, você pode achar 75 mg por dia muito estimulante. Pode levar mais de um mês para o seu sistema nervoso se acalmar. Eu não tentaria diminuir novamente por um tempo. Por favor, diga-nos como você está.

 

Hello Altostrata ... Yeah ... I've been to my psychiatrist, I suggested him a 50 mg nortriptyline prescription, but unfortunately he said he would have to get back the 75mg dose, I'm on my second day using that dose, but I'm very sleepy, anxious and a little fatigue, but I will inform you how I walk, something else if possible, my libido is zero, my marriage is on the line, there is something that helps in libido, thank you and good night ..

If the symptoms are bearable, which meas if you can live with the symptoms, then you would hold until you feel stable.  That might mean waiting for 5 or 6 weeks, or longer, instead of 4.  If the symptoms are unbearable then you could take a tiny bit more of the drug, but you don't go back to the last dose.

 

Please note that it takes about 4 days for a dose change to get to the new level in your blood and a bit longer for it to register in the brain.  Unless the symptoms are really bad in the first 2 or 3 days, it would be better to wait for at least 1 week to give your brain time to get used to the new dose.

 

We suggest that you keep notes on paper of your symptoms, which improves and/or worsens so that you can see how the dose change is affecting you.

hello good night everyone..am a user of nortripitiline currently using a dose of 75mg, and I've been at it for 5 years now, I'm fine, but with a little fatigue, I wonder if it will be very difficult for me to do the withdrawal of this medicine, if anyone can help me in this direction and guide I would be very grateful, because I am from Brazil and around here is very difficult for a doctor to know the withdrawal syndrome .. thanks to all ..

Bem-vindo, texmax.

 

Por favor, não pule doses da droga para afunilar! Se eu fosse você, tomaria 50mg todos os dias no mesmo horário.

 

Deixe seu sistema nervoso descansar por um mês ou mais. Informe-nos como você está.

 

Se não houver problemas, considere reduzir ainda mais

hello altostrata how are you ... so i went back to the 75 mg dose of nortriptyline, at the moment i'm fine, i plan to start my withdrawal in january or february 2020, my psychiatrist will try to help me, despite being contrary to these guidelines, yet I have many doubts, the main one is if everything goes well during the withdrawal in the last doses what I should do, I know it takes time time I am aware of this, sorry for the spelling but it is because I use the google translator to communicate ... I wait an answer..Thank you so much ..

Olá, texmex. Poste suas perguntas sobre sua própria condição no tópico Introdução.

 

Quando esses sintomas começaram? Que horas do dia são piores ou melhores?

Hello Autostrata alright ... so now I am now stabilized with the new 75mg dose of nortriptyline, I plan to start reducing the dose in January or February 2020, I have already talked to my doctor, although he is against some abstinence syndrome guidelines it will reduce the dose by 10% every two months, i would like to know if i can get your support for this long way i will go, like any questions or suggestions during the process i would be very grateful if i could help, for me this site is being very important about these psychiatric drugs and abstinence, I am spreading here in Brazil so that more and more people can enjoy this very important tool that we have here on the site "surviving antidepressants" and I hope you can continue helping the people who are in this difficult way to go ... thanks once again ..

I would not count on reducing in January or February 2020, you'll have to see how you feel. As I wrote before:

Yes, this is a gradual tapering plan.

 

Please do NOT use the <> style to post your translation, I have to edit out the code so I can read your post.

Texmax, I received your PM but I'm answering it here on your thread so all of your information is in one place.

 

We've already answered your question that a 10% reduction is a good taper rate. 

 

Please post any additional questions you have here in your thread.

Oi texmax

 

Mesclamos seu novo tópico com o tópico Introdução. Cada membro tem apenas um tópico de introdução, onde pode fazer perguntas sobre sua própria situação e registrar seu progresso no diário. Faça perguntas aqui no seu tópico de Introdução. Obrigado.

 

Por que diminuir 10% da minha dosagem?

 

dicas para diminuir a nortriptilina

 

Lista de verificação de sintomas de WD do Dr. Joseph Glenmullen

 

 

Se os sintomas são suportáveis, que medem se você pode conviver com os sintomas, você aguenta até se sentir estável. Isso pode significar esperar 5 ou 6 semanas ou mais, em vez de 4. Se os sintomas forem insuportáveis, você poderá tomar um pouco mais do medicamento, mas não voltará para a última dose.

 

Observe que leva cerca de 4 dias para que uma mudança de dose chegue ao novo nível no seu sangue e um pouco mais para ele se registrar no cérebro. A menos que os sintomas sejam realmente ruins nos primeiros 2 ou 3 dias, seria melhor esperar pelo menos 1 semana para dar tempo ao seu cérebro para se acostumar com a nova dose.

 

Sugerimos que você anote no papel os seus sintomas, o que melhora e / ou piora para que você possa ver como a alteração da dose está afetando você.

so, right now I'm fine keeping this 75mg dose, I plan to start my withdrawal in mid-February 2020, when I start I'll warn you so they can orient me ..

hello and good afternoon everyone ...
I was at my psychiatrist this week and thanks to God he agreed to reduce the doses of nortripitilina 75mg by 10%, he gave me the prescriptions for 3 months, each prescription with a 10% dosage with each reduction, at first it was like this, the first prescription at 67.5mg, the second at 60mg and the third at 54mg, I hope everything goes well, at first I'm fine and prepared for the withdrawal, I ask friends who are part of this site to help me in the course of the reduction in case of any doubt or symptom, as he gave me a liquid prescription of 2mg per ml, so that during the withdrawal I can increase the dose if I feel very bad..thanks everyone ..
