Nortriptyline Day 21

I called my neurologist's office the other day to update them on how the nortiptyline was working.

After waiting five hours for a call back, I explained that this was helping a bit but not as much as I'd like. I also brought up nausea I've been having with this medication - something that's made the motion sickness I've had for a few years even worse.

I threw up several times the other day in a car. I've learned I really can't sit in the backseat right now.

We decided to double my dose and see what happens. If the nausea gets to be too much, we'll look at a new medication.

I have been able to be more productive lately, which is nice. I still am waking up with migraines, but they dissipate throughout the day - not always, obviously, but usually. I'm having to rely less on my Axon Optics. I love them but it is nice to not always have to have them on.

We'll see how 20 mg of nortiptyline works.
