I started taking 25 mg. of nortriptline 4 days ago. I feel light headed and fuzzy in the head. The doctor prescribed this for me as I am weaning off of klonopin. I have had severe anxiety and panic attacks for years. Does any one have same symptoms when taking this drug?
Yes I had similar symptoms, but they subsided after about 2 weeks. Nortriptyline helps with depression and anxiety, but it takes 4-6 weeks to get to the full benefits from it. Decreasing your klonopin can also cause you to feel uncomfortable. Do a very slow taper off the klonopin at your own pace so you don't experience any withdrawal. Good luck!
