I have been on Nortriptyline for only a week. It was prescribed for me as a possible help for constant dizziness and sometimes vertigo, and the drug has already made a huge difference! I am using the Nortriptyline starter kit, so tonight I will take 2 pills instead of the first dose of 1 pill at night. My dizziness is not totally gone, so I am understanding that I should escalate the dosage until the results are satisfactory to me. But I also am having headaches every day, and although I would trade the dizziness for the headaches, I am wondering if the higher does will make the headaches worse. Anyone have an idea or opinion on this? I'm new to the forum
