I take this for sleeping. Although I do suffer from Migraines. This knocks me out and helps when I'm in a cluster period with the Migraines. But you need to ensure you dont take this late at night if you got an early up schedule because it will make you drowsy. Get the sleep and no problems. Never knew it was an anti-depressant drug.

I just stopped taking amitriptyline about a week ago after taking about 50 mg each night before bed time. I would like to know how long it takes to get it out of your system. I am finding it hard to get over the effects of detoxing from it.
