Thanks, Bob and Scott and Cam. Yes, I'm on meds for hypertension and ibuprofen for pain. The nortriptyline was to help my fibro pain as well as my depression. Two days lapsed in which I wasn't on a tricyclic, but then I went on Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) again. I've experienced this weird thing before with the shifting visual field, etc when I went off of Flexeril without tapering. I'm now on 10mg Flexeril (related to tricyclics) and haven't had a repeat episode as yet. I guess I'm just sensitive to centrally acting medications. And yes, I just read that a blood level (& can confirm for myself) is done for nortriptyline. The ideal is somewhere between 50mg & 75mg (blood concentration). My doc didn't tell me where mine was, since I almost never see him. I'm just in lot's of pain from the fibro and am desperately trying to find a way out of it. Fibro is also known to cause severe depression. Thanks Bob for giving me the URL for this forum. You all are so kind and up to date on the information. Charlene
