Hi M,

Nice to hear from you too. Life isn't treating me too badly, thanks. Nothing particularly exciting to report though. It's the first time I've been on p-babble in ages.

I'm curious that your doctor would allow you to take nortriptyline in combination with escitalopram, but not a higher dose of escitalopram alone. Both would seem to have similar risk RE the QTC. In reality, the risk to those with structurally normal hearts is probably very low, but doctors practice with caution... they know the legal implications if something goes wrong and they haven't followed the manufacturer's advice. The manufacturer does advise not to use it in combination with TCAs though!

I really hope fluoxetine works out for you. If not, you might find that venlafaxine proves more tolerable this time. It often works like that... with the passage of time and taken in combination with different meds, the side effects (and efficacy) of a med can change remarkably!

I think you're right to half the nortrip, to be honest, it sounds sensibly cautious, especially if you've previously had side effects on higher doses.
