even at the tiny dose of 10 mg, nortriptyline, which i have just started for migraine and headache prevention and fm pain, gives me a racing heart and keeps me up if i take it in the evening. but it does seem to help the headaches and alleviate some pain and improve my overall mood, even at such a low dose. i tried going down to 5mg per day, but the headaches came back.
previously i had taken propranolol, and wonder if adding propranolol to the low dose of nortriptyline would be a good way to counter the racing heart and be a reasonable combo?
