Yes, dizziness is a fairly common side effect of notriptyline

So I suggest you ask your doctor for a different headache medication like propranolol

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
