I've been on 10mg of Nortriptyline for almost 3 weeks. I've found that if I don't get enough sleep I have side effects such as feeling breathless, light headed and dizzy. At times my heart pounds. Today has been really bad that I haven't felt comfortable driving - or really anything else. I've set my alarm as a reminder to take it at 9pm.
My concern is that several times over the next 3 weeks I'm looking after 2 babies (overnights and days) and I don't know what I should do. I'm afraid that if I take my pill that I won't get enough sleep (if any!) and the side effects will be intense like today. Should I skip my dose? At this point it looks like it's 3 overnights in the 3 weeks. What if I take it and it knocks me out that even screaming babies won't wake me?!
Any advice? This is the 4th anti-depressant I've tried this year and by far the most tolerable.
