> I have severe anxiety and cannot tolerate any of the SSRI's.... they were considering one of these two. What do you know about them or either of them, and if you took them what side effects did you experience? or did you find it to help and be effective? I need advice before I go to the dr. and help make a decision on this. any opinions or info. would be appreciated. thank you
Hi. I tried Pamelor (nortriptyline) a few months ago. The first two or three days, I felt much better (I had been on just Celexa and added 25mg/day of Pamelor). But after a week or so, my anxiety level got much higher. I stuck it out for about three weeks but just couldn't stand it. I also got a very very dry mouth.
I have paradoxical reactions to a lot of drugs, though, so it might be fine for you.
