Arrow Do you take Nortriptyline (Pamelor)?

I am extremely depressed and need to take something. My Dr gave me Nortripytyline which I tried to get started on twice (for 2-4 days) but I can't sleep and get bad headaches. Now they gave me Prozac but I heard Nortripytyline is better for Fibromyalgia so maybe I should give it one more shot. Will the side effects go away after awile? Maybe it will help to take in in the morning.
Thanks -

Re: Do you take Nortriptyline (Pamelor)?

Is nortriptyline in the same family as elavil or amatriptyline? That is a gold standard that most docs prescribe, we have had a few threads on it. I personnally can't take it, it leaves me with a hangover the next day and really doesn't help that much with sleep.
