> Like you, I switched from Clomipramine to Nortriptyline. I couldn't tolerate the Tachycardia I got from it. So far though, at 20mg of Nortriptyline, I have no heart issues, no dry mouth, no sedation. I take it all at bed time.

Hi Mike,
Well, The clomipramine experience was not very nice for sure, but at least, I never encounter any heart issue on it... I was just more tired mentally and it was not helping improving my mood and to relieve my SAD or 50 mg...

The Nortryptiline make my heart racing, that's crazy. Like I Was writing 2 minutes ago, I take my last 10 mg at noon today and I already decide to stop after a really high pulse rate I experienced 1 hour after I take my dose...I had 2 hours of speed heart racing around was crazy and I Was out of breath... I wonder why I can't tolerate well such a low dose of Nortryptiline...20mg seem to be not very high... Now i'm back to 125 for the heart pulse rate and I still feel a lot anxious and i'm tired as hell...

I'm also very sensitive to the side-effects of meds...but this one is worse than the Parnate for me...I prefer to do some hypertension or hypotension than doing high pulse rate that make me a lot anxious, on the panic mood and also very agited...

I do believe the TCA's is not for me...I will give another try maybe for the Surmontil (Trimipramine), since it's seem to be less activating and having a more anxiolitic profile...maybe it will help dealing with my GAD and SAD...and the panic disorder as well...

Anyway, I will keep all of you informed after I will talk to my PDoc monday...

Good luck with the Nortryptiline, I really hope it will working on you!!!


Vincent ;-)
