What is the drug you can buy as Generic Pamelor?
If you know the medication under the name Pamelor, probably you reside in the U.S. or the UK because this brand name is commonly distributed and promoted namely in those countries. In other countries, the medication is mostly known as Nortriptyline by the name of the active substance or other trade names.
The preparation is a tricyclic antidepressant medication discovered and approved in 1963 in the U.S. Since then, it became widely used and manufactured by various pharmaceutical companies around the world. However, the brand name Pamelor cannot be used by all those manufacturers because it would infringe the copyrights. Instead, they are obliged to come up with different names. You can find the medication under names Acetexa, Avantyl, Aventyl, Desitriptilina, Noritren, Primox, Psychostyl, Sensaval, and many others. However, you don’t need to remember these trademarks as you can easily find the preparation you need looking for Pamelor or Generic Nortriptyline instead. These are the names introduced by the World Health Organization who promotes the spread of cheaper analogs of the most important medications. These names cannot be registered but any pharmacist and doctor know them and they will instantly understand what medications you are talking about if you ask for generics.
You can buy Pamelor much cheaper than the branded medication. The cheaper price makes generics very attractive for customers from all countries regardless of the general wealth of the country as in the developed, rich countries all medications are quire significantly overpriced.
Why is the branded medication so much more expensive than the generic version?
If you are confused by a low price of generics and suspect that this is because of their low quality, do not be. Generics are as cheap as branded medicines should be because the production of the pills isn’t expensive. The most expensive factors that can make medications expensive are the high cost of the research and intensive promotion. Considering that Nortriptyline was discovered nearly 55 years ago, the cost of the research paid off many times. But brand drug makers still promote their medication investing millions every year to make people believe with the help of doctors that only the large pharmaceutical companies and brand drugs are effective and worth the money spend on them.
Generic medications, on the contrary, are not advertised. People usually look for them as a replacement of the expensive medication their doctor appointed them so they don’t need promotion. This lets generic preparation manufacturers add low margins on their products and offer you to buy Generic Nortriptyline cheap.
When should I buy Generic Pamelor?
The main indication for the medication use is a major depressive disorder. However, the pills are commonly appointed for other conditions too including nocturnal enuresis in children, panic disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, anxiety, neurological pain, and so on.
Although the medication can be used for different conditions, we strongly advise you to discuss the use of the medication with your doctor if he or she didn’t tell you to buy Pamelor, i.e. if you make a self-diagnosis and want to use medication at your own discretion because you believe it would be effective in your case. You should know that there are several groups of antidepressants and all of them are used for different conditions, i.e. a major depression accompanied by anxiety or, on the contrary, by apathy, and these conditions require different accompanying effects from antidepressants. Without a proper diagnosis and use of antidepressants without a therapist’s recommendation and control, you can only worsen your condition.
When is Pamelor contraindicated to be used?
You should not buy Nortriptyline if you have allergy to one or several components of the medication (it can be identified if you started using the pills and developed rash or other side effects), after a myocardial infarction or if you suffer from any block or violation of the heart rhythm, as well as coronary artery disease.
The preparation is also not advised to be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women if only the expected benefit from the medication wouldn’t outweigh the potential risk.
The preparation is contraindicated to be used at the same time with MAO inhibitors. The interval between the therapies should be no less than 14 days.
The undesirable combinations are with sympathomimetic medications (epinephrine, ephedrine, isoprenaline, norepinephrine, phenylephrine, and others); adrenergic neuron blockers (guanethidine, betanidine, reserpine, Clonidine, methyldopa, and others); anticholinergics; preparations that contribute to the QT interval elongation; antifungal medications (fluconazole and terbinafine); any medications that depress the central nervous system including alcohol.
