pain, due to meds???

My DR.s put me on nortriptyline 75mg at bedtime, after I recieved my implant on Oct.16.06. I have bradycardia and I am 30yrs old. They said it was for chronic pain.(migraine sufferer) I was having lots of pain at/around my heart and pacer, they said it was in my head or indigestion. Well, I stopped taking meds (cold turkey) Apr.23.07. The pains have now subsided to where I may have a pain once or twice a week. I was worried about getting migraines and haven't even had a headache. Not sure what DR.s will say when find out, but I do feel better. Now if only I could get some sleep, I.d have no complaints.

nortriptyline.....isn't that elavil? if so, it is on the "do not take" list of drugs for long QT syndrome. it can cause torsades de pointes. not a good drug for people who have arrhythmia.
