This is Dr. David
nortriptyline is an older tricyclic antidepressant used to help sleep and treat mild depression
prozac is an SSRI selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressant
the two medications taken can increase the nortriptyline dose and cause risks for SIADH (syndrome of inappropriate anti-diuretic hormone) or hyponatremia (low sodium levels), or serotonin syndrome or other problems
talk to your doctor before taking both of these in the same day.
Prozac 90mg weekly can be used as maintenance therapy to treat depression disorder instead of daily prozac
do you have a history of depression?
is your depression symptoms under control with daily prozac?
