I was given 25 mg. of Nortriptyline for mild depression; I had trouble sleeping, and was extremely groggy all day; I could hardly move and when I did, every muscle seemed to ache. It was scary! I thought I had some dreaded disease. one other time I was prescribed the drug citalopram for depression and it sent me into a panic attack. So I'm guessing some of these drugs have the opposite effect on my body. Has anyone else had this problem? I really prefer not to take drugs at all...but there are times when I want some help coping. ...

effects of Nortriptyline
4 Replies RSS
I have just started taking this drug and understand that it is to help me sleep and help with chronic pain. However, I cannot sleep well with this, even though I feel drugged for at least 15 hours after a very low dose - 10 mg. It is also supposed to help with depression, but I feel more depressed. Can anyone shed light on this for me? What are your experiences with this drug? ## Hi Mieke, As a psychotherapist and a Holistic practitioner I wanted to address your comment because it sounds like your body is not responding well to the medication. You are not sleeping well and feeling drugged out much of the day and most alarming is that even though it is supposed to help you with the depression, it is actually making you feel worse. I am speculating, but are you a young adult (18 to 25 yrs... ...

Zolpidem With Nortriptyline
2 Replies RSS
I would like to take nortriptyline(10mg) with zolpidem(10mg) at night, are these two medications ok to take together? I'm having some lower back pain. ## Has your doctor advised you to take them both? Both the Nortriptyline and the Zolpidem can cause depression of the central nervous system, so when they are used together, the dosage has to be carefully considered by your doctor and they should be monitoring you on a regular basis. ## My Dr. did prescribe these two medication, but not to be taken together,, she was trying to find a solution to my sleeplessness besides ambien,,nortriptyline did not help with sleep as I had hoped,,,thought it might help with some pain,,I will not take the notriptyline, does not sound like a safe combo. ...

phentermine and nortriptyline
1 Reply RSS
I take 50 mg of nortriptyline to help prevent migraines. I am obese and am having trouble losing weight. I want to try phentermine along with a healthy food plan and exercise. If the dose of phentermine is kept low (15 mg), is it safe to take with the nortriptyline? ## Hello, Jamie! How are you? No, these two aren't safe to take together, it could cause a life threatening reaction. Nortriptyline is classified by the FDA as a TCA and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and weight gain. If some of your weight gain is due to the Nortriptyline, then you likely aren't going to lose any, as long as you are still on it. Have you tried any other antidepressants? Some don't cause weight gain, so you may do better with a different one. ...

Nortriptyline for migraines, insomnia...
1 Reply RSS
I just started 25mg nortriptyline for migraine prevention. I was previously on amitriptyline for them and it worked so well, but I was a zombie, couldn't wake up in the morning and had gained 10 pounds. I was always hungry and never felt full. I am hoping that the noritriptyline will have less side effects (at least that's what my doctor tells me). Day 2 of not sleeping. I take the pill before bed and that must be the problem. Does anyone take it in the morning? I'm a little worried that taking it in the morning will still keep me up that night. Also, is 25mg a little high for a starting dosage? ## Hello, JaneCat! How are you? As to your starting dosage, you're not actually starting, you're just switching from one to the other, so you'd not start it at the same d... ...

Nortriptyline and difficulty swallowing
3 Replies RSS
I have been taking 10mg of nortriptyline at night for migraine prevention for approximately 7 weeks. Shortly after starting this medication I began to have difficulty swallowing. After I eat I feel as though I have food stuck in my throat. Even the tiny, tiny nortriptyline pill taken with a glass of water sometimes feels stuck. Is difficulty swallowing a common side effect or should I be concerned? ## Hello, Sd26! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. It sounds like you might be experiencing some acid reflux, many medications can cause it. Have you had this checked out by your doctor, yet? You may need to switch to a different medication, or take something that will help prevent the excess acid. Nortriptyline is classified by the FDA as being a ... ...

Can I combine nortriptyline and amitriptyline?
1 Reply RSS
Hi, I was on amitriptyline 20 mg before sleep time and venlafaxine 150 mg in the morning. Because of side effects my doctor prescribed me nortriptyline 25 mg in the evening and 25 mg in the morning. I was sleeping better when I was on amitriptyline. Would it be a good idea to take amitriptyline before sleep time and nortriptyline early in the morning. Are there anybody who has sleep issues on nortriptyline? Thanks in advance. ## Hello, Peter! How are you? How long have you been on the Nortriptyline, now? Most of these medications can cause sleep disruptions, but it usually improves after about 4 to 6 weeks, once your bodies adjust to the drug. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. ...
