 4  Migraine vertigo Dizzy panic anxiety dry mouth Has helped started on 10mg going up slowly is a slow process and did not work immediately on each dosage increase there is side effects but go after two weeks F 38 3 months
 1  Nerve pain Intrusive suicidal thoughts, disassociation, anxiety, feeling irritable and unstable Although this helped my nerve pain tremendously, I wanted to hurl myself out of a window. I have never experienced this level of agitation paired with disassociation. Not worth it at all. F 26 5 days
 5  Anxiety, major depression, PTSD Constipation, dry mouth( in the beginning ) Started out 10mg every day for 2 weeks then 20mg for 2 weeks now 30mg presently. Last appt. dr. Did not up the dose. I feel the 30mg is working great. I feel if it's upped it might interfere with driving. This medication should be started at lowest possible dose and slowly increased. It does take a while to work with your body. Please hang in there. My side effects have acutually gone away. The constipation may be relieved by increasing fiber intake. Have more smoothies, salads, etc. this medication has relieved my debilitating depression, anxiety symptoms & panic attacks. I feel that it slows my brain processing down enough to choose the way I respond to stressful situations. It take training at first. I'm over 2 months into it and I'm finding great relief. I first felt a great change after week and half of use. Other meds cause sexual side effects for me, I feel they numb me too much. No sexual numbing with this one. If I took higher dosage it might be possible. With this med. I'm gaining control over my intrusive thoughts. When negative thoughts enter my mind I'm now able to "delete" them and move on to productive, positive thought process. I was extremely depressed and traumatized before use. Please, if beginning this med. Be patient with it and as hard as it is to do while depressed, try to train your brain into thinking postivlely. It doesn’t happen over night but does eventually work. It takes time. I just want to help someone and give you hope if you feel F 42 2 months

 4  depression, anxiety Yes, it's true that I've taken this medicine for over 15 years. Took a much higher dose initially (60 mg), but then tapered off to 10 mg/day (w/ option of 20 mg during high-stress times). It has been very effective for me--stopped or slowed down the panic attacks and increased my feelings that I could cope with my stressors. Eventually seemed to slowly help lift the black cloud surrounding me. Few bad side effects, except chronic constipation. Fortunately, way less noticeable negative effect on sexual function, unlike the SSRI's I tried initially. F 50 15 years

 4  Migraines and depression/anxiety Can't sleep at night but sleep during day well. Flushing of face and body ? from this. Was taking citalapram also but stopped this 2 weeks ago and have been anxious/nervy at work but will see if gets better. Only thing that works for my migraines. Was having them daily and taking 6 ibrufen and valium to get to work at night. Got ulcers and now had operation on stomach so as acid does not reach ulcers as would not heal. Wish I had known about Norpress earlier. Spent alot of money on acupuncture, chiropractor etc with no luch. F 60 1 years

 4  RUPTURED DISK SPINAL NERVE PAIN Dry mouth, anxious,constipation, insomnia I have ruptured disk and permanent nerve damage to my sciatica. Sitting is very painful to my left side -sciatica area. Standing also is painful.I am NOT a person who was used to taking medications. I am a very energetic type of person, I worked hard and loved my job, so being injured was extremely difficult, but my pain was taking over my life, and for me narcotics was not something I wanted to rely on. My PA started me on 25 mg of Nortriptyline. It has help me tremendously. I feel like I am getting my life back. It has only been 30 days, so I will follow up, But I can walk on beach, lay on my left side, sit a little longer, I feel like a different person. I do not have depression, but because of my situation I have mild intermittent anxiety, and this medication has made me more anxious, but I have lots more energy now because pain is 50% better which is huge for me, so I feel like there is hope.I have to take it in the early morning so I can sleep at night.At this point, the benefits definitely out weigh the side effects.I have worked out side effects except a little bit of increased anxiety- but workable.

 5  Irritable Bowel Syndrome none I have been experiencing constant stomach pain for about two years. My pain worsened after eating. I was diagnosed with IBS and prescribed several medications, but none seemed to help much. My P.A. said she wanted me to try a medication which is an anti-depressant, but had been found to help lots of other symptoms. I am very sensitive to medication and was prescribed 10mg Pamelor, one each night. After being on this medication for a few weeks, I began to feel much better. Now, I am able to eat anything without experiencing pain. F 30 days
