Hi everyone. I think I have Nortriptyline induced insomnia. I was taking Gabapentin & Nortriptyline before I had back surgery last October. Then only Gabapentin. This last week my doctor put me back on Nortriptyline for 2 other bulged disks (pain) and now I have more trouble sleeping! I don't remember having THIS much trouble before & I had way more pain. But 2 nights ago I couldn't fall asleep until after 5:30 AM! I'm usually in bed before 11 p.m. Even Melatonin doesn't help. Anyone have any ideas how to get rid of the insomnia? I can't always sleep in.
If I am exposed to temps. even as low as 80 degrees, I start too heat up & it gets A LOT WORSE with higher temps! I will start to feel heat around my head, neck, & chest. I will turn very red around all those areas & when it starts, it escalates very rapidly to literally sickening feelings. I get nausea, weak, lightheaded & sometimes very faint with headaches. I must try to cool down as fast as possible with ice or wet towels so as to not let it get "out of hand". I try to work in an air conditioned bldgs & try very hard to stay out of the sun & hot temps.

I also am aware of other symptoms like tight shoulder, neck muscles, slight tremor, heart palpitations, agitation. All reduced immediately if I limit my synthroid dose. What to do.

I have been suggested Doxycline for 5 days (2 per day) before my frozen embryo transfer. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis - hypothyroidism and I take 125 mg of synthroid per day. Currently my TSH is 0.41. Would taking the above dosage of Doxycycline increase my TSH level?
I've been on 20 mg Parnate daily for depression for about 1 year. It's very difficult to get to sleep at night when on Parnate. Would like to find a less medical way than what I take now for it which is .25 xanax and 15 mg Seroquel. That gives such a deep sleep, I have trouble waking up and ...

regarding having muscle aches and trouble sleeping.. I take synthroid every morning and at night before I go to sleep; I take 400 mg of magnesium.. It is great for muscle cramps and gives you a sound sleep.. It is a great mineral for your body.
