Hello there.

I have been prescribed amitriptyline (1 10 mg tablet every other night, or 1 every night 10 days before period) for acute atypical migraines. I take lamictal with my amitriptyline 10 days before my period as well (due to seizure-like spells). My doctor also prescribed diclofenac as well, but I'm concerned about harmful interactions. Should I be concerned?

I have been suffering from headaches for about a year now and I was sent to do a CT Scan , and the results showed that everything was normal in the brain, but the headaches that I was having was Chronic Headaches, but I was given Amitriptyline tablet (10mg) to take because they said it makes you drowsy, and then I was given a higher dose of 25mg in the Amitriptyline and I take it every night, but I am still having the headaches and I have tried almost all of the over-the-counter drugs and I don t know what to use again, because the headache is realyy affecting my lifestyle.

Yes...I am a 75 year old female who had a really bad sleep problem. I would go days without sleep..or just a few hours sleep. My doctor gave me the amitriptyline to help solve it. I started off with 10 mg and worked my way up to 50 mg. til I could get any sleep. I still lay awake for maybe an hour or more til I finally go to sleep. I sleep good and All through the night but am concerned that the side affects could dig up other problems that are not good. I had been on Paxil for years for panic attack but my doctor took me off of it. She said that the medication would help my panic attacks too. Are there any risks I should consider?

I am a 44 yr old female with abdominal pain. The pain began intermittently about 1 and 1/2 yrs ago. I went to the doctor and they completed an ultrasound of my abdomen and also an EGD. No findings of gallbladder stones, etc. Since that time I have had instances of pain in the same area (upper right side) - sometimes after meals but not consistent until about 5 weeks ago. I went to the urgent care and they ordered a HIDA scan. I did not have the test at that time because morphine used in the test makes me sick. Four weeks later the pain was acute and I went to the ER. They did another abdominal ultrasound - no stones. I did follow-up with my doc who ordered the HIDA scan - had it done and no stones. I also had a CT and another EGD and colonoscopy - no stones but the pain now is every day. I have an appt with a surgeon on Monday only because I have become my own advocate for help - the pain is there and they have dismissed it as gastroenteritis - I have had GERDs for the past 10 yrs and it is much worse now with the pain on the right side. The doc who completed the colonoscopy prescribed a drug for cramping after but also prescribed Amitriptyline??? Let s be clear, I am not depressed. Yes, for the past 2 weeks that they have been trying to diagnosis this pain, it has been rough, but why would they prescribe this drug? It is so frustrating to be in pain daily and then because they cannot seem to figure it out, they think that I must be depressed?? I am hopeful that the surgeon will either order an MRI to more precisely diagnosis what is going on, or take out the gallbladder. Your thoughts?
