Patient :Hi. I had a head trauma in 2012 and was put on nortriptyline for over a period of 1-2 years and it went away for 9 months. Recently I have had a relapse and have gone back on the pills. Is there an alternative? I have read about epidural blood patch being one. Would this be better than taking these pills again that have awful side effects?
