> You might wanna consider Amitriptyline's metabolite Nortriptyline. Its pharmacological profile is similar, but it is less sedating (less anticholinergic effects, less antihistamine effects)

Nortriptyline is MUCH more tolerable than amitriptyline. The difficulty with nortriptyline is that it takes awhile to find the best dosage. A lot of people who respond well at 100 mg/day will lose the improvement if they increase the dosage to 150 mg/day. Blood tests are available to measure blood levels of nortriptyline. It helps for finding the right dosage more quickly.
