Amitriptyline

Generic Elavil®

Amitriptyline is a preventive medication for migraines that reduces migraine frequency. It is classed as a tricyclic antidepressant and is regularly prescribed as a prophylactic medication used to treat migraines. The medication is still awaiting FDA-approval for the prevention of migraines, despite a number of studies proving its efficacy. Amitriptyline is known to increase the number of neurotransmitters in the brain that affect well-being and mood, most notably serotonin. Serotonin plays a role in the regulation of blood vessels during a migraine attack. It should not be used by anyone under the age of 18. Amitriptyline is available only with your doctor's prescription.
