Nortriptyline safe? Doc said will help headaches. I looked up side effects. Fast heart rate. Low blood pressure. Hepatitis. These common side effects?
Yes, It is safe: As long as the dose is started low and gradually increased until you have pain control, there should be no problem with lightheadedness or dizziness. It is a safe medication and in fact was the most commonly prescribed antidepressant up until about 1985. I have treated hundreds of patients with it and have done research with it as well. The most common side effects in the long run are dry mouth, constipation, difficulty urinating if the doses too high especially, andblurred vision only close up reading.An occasional patient will also have G.I. Upset. Lightheadedness and dizziness is a function of dose and can be regulated by checking a blood level if necessary. If you find yourself being lightheaded or dizzy make sure that you get up slowly from a lying or sitting position and dangling legs over the side of the bed especially the middle of the night for about 30 seconds will allow the blood to move up up towards your head so you won't get lightheaded or dizzy standing. Anoccasional craving for sweets can occur with this medication and is to some degree dose dependent. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could taking certain medication (Albuterol, Flovent, Buspar) effect Syphilis Serology test results?
Highly unlikely: The initial tests for syphilis are screening tests which are quite sensitive but may be non-specific. If these are negative it is not going to be from medications you are taking. If positive they are almost always followed up with more specific testing to be sure that they were not biologically false-positive results. ...Read more
