I will try this again since my other post didn't make it.
Within 10 days this is what I did. Increase accidently from 50 to 70 of nortryptline. On the 2nd day in the evening I felt like hell. I realized my mistake and went back to 50 and felt decent. I lowered to 40 and on the 2nd day my sleep was disturbed and even worse on the 3rd day. I went back to 50 on the 4th night and slept even worse. Took 50 last night and feel much better today. So, things changed after a day, but if I miss a dose I don't sleep so well. This drug definately doesn't take 4 to 6 weeks to work. Maybe for depression it does, but to help my sleep it worked fairly quick. I am med sensitive so I know really quick what is going to work and that is why I am leary of lexapro.
