Chronic neuropathic pain, insomnia and major depression have been treated with Norpramin for over half a century. Norpramin, the go-to drug for these conditions, has seen an increase in off-label use over the past several years. Individuals with conditions such as manic depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bulimia and even cocaine dependency are frequently being prescribed Norpramin.

When used on conditions for which it was originally intended, and for off-label conditions where brain chemicals are at play, Norpramin increases the number of neurotransmitters in the brain that affect mood. Disruptions in the levels of these neurotransmitters leads to depression, sleep dysfunction, and loss of appetite. For those recovering from cocaine addition, Norpramin works to lessen depression, and ease cravings felt during withdrawal.

As with any drug, dependency or addiction can occur. Norpramin is not considered to be physically addictive, though a psychological dependency and addiction can form. This typically occurs as a user looks to enhance their state of well-being and increases their dosage. Once addicted, there are several side effects that may keep the person using, rather than going through a withdrawal scenario. These side effects include nausea, vomiting, decreased libido, insomnia, confusion, and more. For cocaine users, side effects associated with withdrawal from that substance may be further complicated if Norpramin is decreased or eliminated.

Reliance on using Norpramin or a reluctance to discontinue its use is problematic – but help to break this cycle is available. To learn more, check out the related topics provided or contact a representative at The Recovery Village to learn about options for recovery.
