I think if I had to do it over again, I would start the nifedipine right when the headache starts rather than based on the blood pressure. I still have a bit of a throbbing headache in the base of the back of my head. I don't know if this is hypertensive hangover; parnate withdrawal or a side effect of the nifedipine.

I did actually bite, put under the tongue for about 2 second and then swallowed.

elizabeth: are you still on buprenorphine? Just wondering. Is the Desipramine still doing you good? Did you see the comment I made (earlier post--no need to go back to it tho) about augment Nardil with Desipramine or vica versa. Someone on the board reported good success with this.

I'm on to Nardil, started yesterday. No hypertensive episode so I'll call that success.
