It's me again...that insomnia is kicking my @#s again....maybe i should try this stuff too..hahaha....

 

Have you started taking this drug?...one of the potential side effects of nortriptiline is confusion, especially when administered along with other drugs that mess with serotonin in our brains...(see Jenette's previous post: hallucinations). just guessing here, trying to help.

 

we should always check the potential side effects of meds when having a new, and rather unusual symptom. Pd is not always guilty as charged...

I take a very small dose of it every night to help me sleep. It works for me, with no bad effects, for almost a year now. Of course, this probably doesn't help you at all since we all react differently.

 

Hope you find the cause of your trouble soon!

I believe nortriptyline is an older antidepressant that also helps with sleep/ My son was given it as an adolescent and it helped his sleep. I was told it is very short acting and must be taken every day at the same time. ?helpful?

People say marijuana helps you sleep. Anybody out there tried it?

The side effects of marijuana are of no comparison to what these other drugs do to us.

At least that's what the Data Seems to say.

I will definitely give it a try when it's legal here in PA. I'm not as likely to do so until then, unlike when I was a teenager so many years ago.
