Nortriptyline (brand name: Pamelor), the medication that was switched out in Carrie's bathroom, is a maintenance antidepressant, meaning that it is useless to take as needed for anxiety like Carrie does. Belonging to the class of tricyclic antidepressants, it is very outdated and rarely ever used for depression and/or bipolar disorder anymore (its main use nowadays is to treat nerve pain and/or prevent migraine type headaches) due to its vast side effects, mainly excessive drowsiness. If used, it is advised to every user to be taken at bedtime, and any patient on this medication knows about marked drowsiness to occur. Knowing this, she would not have used Nortriptyline to treat a sudden attack. Two of her other medications are suited for this, and prescribed on an "as needed" basis: Lorazepam (Ativan) and clonazepam (Klonopin) - suffering with her condition, she would have known to take either of these.

Miss Brody
28 October 2015 | by wolfriverSee all my reviews

I'm new to this series and am now on Season four and just finished "From A to B and back again. When they hung Brody the show lost a lot for me. Some part of me kept thinking that the Iranian spy guy arranged for him to have a halter on and fake the hanging because he kept his word and killed the top spy guy...that he would show up again later. Now I know he's gone for good and the show just got less engaging. Wish the writers could find a way to bring Brody back or at least let his family know that he was a hero in the end. Carrie's constant self-destruction is getting really old. Disease or not she really never learns. All the actors give it their best and are compelling, and the sense of how real this world they live in is transferred to the viewer. Makes me realize that in today's world there is no place to hide.
