    Taking this drug for neuropathic pain was one of the worst experiences I have ever had with a prescription drug. Not only did the drug NOT help with the pain nor help as a sleep aid but, in fact, made matters worse. The pain that had focused on my lower limbs was now throughout my body. Shivers, aches, and tingling from head to toe. Hallucinations and severe anxiety were also a nice side effect t ... Show Full Comment

    I have Stage 5 CRPS and have been taking 75MG of Nortriptyline (Generic for Pamelor) at bedtime for a few years now. I feel that I have been taking it long enough to say for sure that it helps with my treatment. I recommend this drug, but everyone is different and we all respond to medication differently, I hope Nortriptyline give's you the same hope in your treatment that it has given me.

    Started taking this about 3 weeks ago for Chronic Migraine pain and I also have a brain aneurysm. I have had the headache for 4 1/2 months with no relief. The severity has decreased slightly but not complete relief. I have noticed a decrease in the numbness and tingling that were also part of a prediabetic neuropathy diagnosis. Side effects I have noticed are feeling tired all day, mild nausea ... Show Full Comment
