Norpramin Storage Methods

Norpramin should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should also be kept in an airtight container.
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Norpramin as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if you usually take your dose at night, you may not want to make up the missed dose, since Norpramin may cause drowsiness if it is taken during the day. Also, if it is almost time for your next dose, you should skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of Norpramin.
