Aha! So, someone else has experienced this as well! I'm glad to have it verified. My PA & my psychiatrist had no idea what it was; I'm glad you say that it is fairly common. But experiencing it doesn't feel unserious; it is downright scary. And a bizarre feeling. Thanks for sharing this. And thanks everyone for sharing the nortriptyline info. I'm learning more about meds here than I did in nursing school.

> >In regards to withdrawel, I had some of those "seizure like' experiences when i missed two daily doses of 50 mgs. I experienced this right as I was drifting off to sleep.It was very scary but when i talked to my Dr. he said it was absolutely a withdrawel symptom. That was the last time I went away for the weekend without bringing my meds! Incidently, although it was a very scary experience (I was afraid to go back to sleep all night) my Dr. said it was harmless, not really a seizure but a sort of hallucinatory experrience and not all that uncommon.
