I’m currently taking 10mg of nortriptyline. My doctor has cleared me to move up to 20MG, but seeing as how I react so strongly to medications, I’d like to go up to 15 first. The problem is, nortriptyline does not come in 5 or 15MG, so the only way for me to get 15 is to take one and a half 10MG capsules. I tried splitting a capsule as per my MD’s recommendation but powder went anywhere and it didn’t seem practical to continue. Has anyone had success in this approach? Are tablets (as opposed to capsules) available? My MD wasn’t sure but I didn’t push it because I already had the medication and saw no reason to explore it at the time. I’ll call him tomorrow (before he goes on vacation) to get a prescription for the tablets if so.
I’m committed to sticking with a medication regimen, but it’s important for me to go at my own pace. Thanks as always!
