Brief Answer: Yes. You can combine these two. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. Deanxit already is a mild anti depressant. It can be combined with other anti depressants like Nortriptyline or Venlafaxine but this should be done only after a careful assessment by a psychiatrist. The doses need to be regulated according to the severity of the symptoms. SSRIs do take around 6 weeks to start showing an effect. Increasing the dosage may also help. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Brief Answer: It is a low dosage. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for writing again. 10mg daily dose of nortriptyline is a too low dose for depression. Usually this dose is gradually increased after seeing the clinical response to get a full relief. Dizziness can sometimes persist in some cases. If this is persistent then you can think about changing the anti depressant to a more suitable option. Since it is a small dose, withdrawal effects are not likely on stopping the medicine. Hope my answer is helpful. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health. Regards
