Years long Amitriptyline use

It has been a very long time since I posted and it is all because of amitriptyline, believe it or not. Takeaway: Do not let anyone you know take amitriptyline as a migraine prophylactic. Do not assume your family doctor understands the risks of longterm amitriptyline use. When I was eight, I began h...
