Aventyl (Nortriptyline Hydrochloride) is the active metabolite of Amitriptyline and is considered a second-generation tricylic antidepressant (TCA). Tricyclics, including Aventyl, have a narrow therapeutic index, increasing the likelihood of an overdose (both accidental and intentional).  Aventyl should not be abruptly or rapidly discontinued due to the potential of severe withdrawal symptoms. It is recommended to do a slow taper to minimize symptoms. Contact Us if you need help to taper off Aventyl or have questions.  Click here to read more about Aventyl.

Aventyl history and info

Notriptyline (Aventyl) is approved for the treatment of major depression and childhood nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting), but it is also used off-label for panic disorder, irritable bowel, migraines and chronic pain. Tricyclic Antidepressants were developed in the early 1950s amid the explosive expansion of psychopharmacology and named after their chemical structure that contains three rings of atoms. Tricyclics began with the synthesis of chlorpromazine in December 1950 and generated significant revenue as an antipsychotic by 1955. This spurred chemists to explore other derivatives. The first clinical trial took place in 1955 and it wasn't long before Tricyclics became the first choice for the treatment of depression. But due to their side effect profile, Tricylics have been largely replaced by SSRIs and other antidepressants.

All Tricyclics, including Aventyl, have a narrow therapeutic index, increasing the likelihood of an overdose (both accidental and intentional). Close monitoring is recommended for any patient on Nortriptyline with a history of cardiovascular disease, glaucoma, stroke, seizures, or hyperthyroid. Aventyl should not be combined with MAO Inhibitors, Turmeric or Curcumin due to the risk of Serotonin Syndrome.

Aventyl should not be abruptly or rapidly discontinued due to the potential of severe withdrawal symptoms. It is recommended to do a slow taper to minimize symptoms.
