I have been taking nortryptiline for a little over a week. 25 mg a night. I also take Trazodone for sleep. My doctor said to take both at night. I feel increased anxiety during the days which is one of the reasons for taking the nortryptiline. I can take .5 mg Xanax 3 per day but it one dose only lasts about 2-3 hours. I want to try to ride the increased anxiety out with the nortryptiline, hoping it will calm down as my body gets used to it. Anyone with any similar experience or advice? Thanks!
