Nortriptyline for Anxiety

Recommended Posts

I've just been prescribed Nortriptyline for anxiety to replace Effexor (manic reaction). I was wondering if anyone else has had any luck taking this med for anxiety rather than depression. I'd be interested in hearing anyone's experiences. I'm starting super low at 10 mg. I believe it is also called Pamelar and is in the Elavil family. I feel a bit hesitant about adding this old school AD to my cocktal, but I am trying to keep an open mind and stop thinking "WTF is this 1967?????". ;)

My current cocktail is:

Trileptal 1200 mg

Topamax 150 mg

Seroquel 300 mg

Wellbutrin 150 mg

Effexor 37.5 mg (discontinuing)

Clonazepam 2 mg (prn)

Lipitor 20 mg (for high cholesterol due to Seroquel)

Codeine Phosphate 120 mg (for spinal pain)
