Migraine from Nortriptyline

I was hoping anyone had info on how Nortriptyline works. My Neurologist prescribed a low dose of it to try for my newly acquired migraines w/ auras. After one pilll it gave me the worst migraine of my life. I thought I was going to die. Whatever it did to me caused it. Anyone know what it does?

Re: Migraine from Nortriptyline

What did your dr say? I had that same reaction when i tried one prozac from the doctor. I was in tears it was so bad. Every reacts differently to meds. Nortriptyline may not work for you. There are soo many meds to try.

good luck!
