I am on 80mg of amitryptaline per day,also epilim and pro-panalol. This is all to prevent migraine aura and migraine. I also take on a ad hock basis when I first get the aura - amalgran.
I am waiting to see a neurologist in Feb but have been on this dosage of meds for about 14 months.
I still get the aura but cant tie it down to a pattern or trigger. I don't have dairy,coffee, chocolate, alcohol or artificial sweetener and havnt done for about 12 years or more since I saw a food allergy man.
I do sleep very well at night!!!But have not noticed any real adverse effects apart from the fact that my appetite has increased and I have put on 2 stone in the last year.
However also worth mentioning that i have M.E. and other related medical probs but dont know if this causes the migraine aura or not!!
I am happy to help with any questions about amitryptaline as I have been on and off it for the last 12 years.
