In reply to Anyone Using Nortriptyline Hcl (Pamalor)?, posted by Gene Lowery on February 8, 2001, at 15:14:21
I've taken Nortriptyline for over 2 years now. I also take Zyprexa which has even worse weight gain side effects. After about 4 - 6 months the weight gain stopped and I leveled off about 50 pounds heavier. Since then I have been able to lose weight with a low carb diet and daily trips to the gym. I know of a few others on AD's who have lost the weight after the initial gain.
The weight can come off but it will take a lot more time to get rid of it than it took to put it on.
