I am asking as I used to take amitryptilline a few years ago for migraines. I knew amitryptilline was an ad but it is used in lots of other illnesses, mine was as a preventative (think it can block pain pathways). I used to take it before bed and it made me sleep like a log! I suffered really badly with migraines, affected my work, social life, relationships and although mine never seemed connected to menstrual cycle three years ago when I had the menopause they miraculously stopped! Anyway, I digress! I do have a few packets left and I know we shouldn't self-medicate but have now read that amitryptilline can be used for anxiety and I wondered if anyone takes it and/or has had any relief from their anxiety from it. Thanks, Kaz
