And from the narcortics I was given it threw me into cluster migraines. Saw my primary yesterday and he upped my nortriptyline to 50 mgs at night and 25 in the morning still no relief. Last night I had one at 2am and it lasted an hour I have been on the nortriptyline for 2 weeks and Im a hurting pup. When will it start working???
Tricyclics typically take about 6-8 weeks to work. Since you have had an increase, it should take less. By now you should be feeling better if this is the right drug for you. Pamelor/nortriptyline (nor TRIP ti leen) should make you sleepier than before you started it. It's not unusual to have the sleepy feeling last partly into your daytime.
