Re: Nortriptyline

I took 75mg at night for about a year for depression and enck pain, found it quite helpful, and despite the bad rep tricyclics have, it was easy to take.... just felt drowsie for the first three days or so. You need to make sure you're taking a theraputic dose - many patients on tricyclics get given small, ineffective doses

Remeron (mirtazapine) is also another good one to consider when SSRI's and welbutrin dont work.
