migraine medication

my daughter was recently changed from amitriptilyne to nortriptilyne and has experienced a great deal of dizziness and almost passing out.  Is this normal.

I took nortyptiline but a doctor had me stop because I was having rapid heart rate with it.  Can she or you take her pulse and see if it's fast?  I also felt something like a zombie on that medication as well, I recall.  I think she should take it easy, not getting up much and Monday, call the doctor about discontinuing the medication.

oops- it looked like you had posted this today before I responded!  I hope she's already discontinued the medication then!
