I suffered a concussion about 3 weeks ago and have had headaches everyday since. My doctor prescribed nortriptyline but I'm nervous about starting it. I don't take any medications at all. This seems to be a med for depression and anxiety, I don't have either, and I don't want to start a long term medication. I also learned that you can't just stop taking this medication due to withdrawal symptoms. What should I do? My gut is telling me this is not a good idea.
