Medication and migraines

Apr 10, 2016 7:19 PM

My rheumatologist stuck me on Pamelor,since being placed on it I have constant pressure in my head, and it doesn't take much to put me in a full blown migraine. Anyone else have experience with this medication?

DutchessBek, I'm sorry you are having trouble with the med. I've taken Pamelor/Nortriptyline for over 25 years and I've never had any problems. Have you notified your rheumy doc to see if there's an alternative? Hugs & prayers you'll get something different, or the side effects will go away. Check out the med on www.drugs.com
