Yes eventually: It may take some time if you are completely bald, but yes it will come back if caused by trichotillamania. It usually grows back thin initial and may take several years to grow back the way it was before pulling. If you have anemia, it's important get started on a good diet rich in iron and b vitamins. I know a dietician would have some suggestions for you.

Talk w UR prescriber: Transient side effects can occur early on in treatment, but at 4 weeks they should have gone away. It sounds like you are not tolerating the medication very well. You are on a starting dose so you can stop it without problem, but the best advice would be to consult your prescriber to determine other options.

Depends on symptoms: If you are taking the nortriptyline for depression then 2 weeks or 1month and then re evaluate. For anxiety disorder take 1 month and then reevaluate. More times then not an increase of dosage is needed and a longer period on the medication, 8 to 10 weeks before resolution or improvement of anxiety symptoms..
