How long Nortriptyline takes to kick-in?


I have recently been prescribed with Nortriptyline 20mg and go 10 mg more every week. I have with this drug since a week and don't see any effect. How long does it take the medicine to kick in? Appreciate your Suugestion

This source, which I trust very much, states that pain relief usually occurs within the first week. I would give it another week to see how it goes. Most doctors would tell you that you need to try it for 2 weeks before giving up on a drug.

Most drugs for nerve pain only work on a minority of people, so a trial of several different meds or a combination is often needed.
