Re: Nortriptyline

It's been my friend for a long time.

Improves sleep, reduces pain. I take 20 mg per day.

The #1 side effect to watch for is dry mouth, which can contribute to tooth decay. You have to be more careful about dental hygiene. In some people it can cause GI issues. (In other people, it improves GI issues.)

See what happens. The good news is, it's super-cheap. I think I paid $14 for my last month's supply, without insurance.
