    Hi,
    I have been taking Nortriptyline for sleep, for about 6 weeks.

    Somedays I feel like its working other days I feel like I am getting worse than before I took the meds.

    How long do you give treatments before you try something else. This last few days have been really tough and I feel like I am getting worse!

    I want to get a sleep study done to make sure I am getting into stage 4 sleep with this med but I have a feeling the doc will say, lets wait and see "the proff is in the pudding"

    In the meantime I feel like I am worse on my bad days and better on my good days.

    Is this just nuts or what?

    I think that is what I am going to do. I am a very type A person who has been told all her life that she needs to be patient!

    I really want to try Xyrem, but I feel like I should give my current treament from my doc a fair shake.

    Thanks!

    PS, is your last name place?

    Elavil and Flexeril. Both helped with sleep but left me groggy the next day. Also, I put on a lot of weight rapidly with them both.

    I actually took Klonopin for anxiety and sensory overload but it also helped me to get good quality sleep.

    Love, Mikie
