What is the migraine medicine Amitriptyline?

Amitriptyline is a generic medicine that’s commonly prescribed by doctors to treat migraines.

If you suffer from migraines, our medical team at Lemonaid Health can prescribe Amitriptyline online and our mail order pharmacy can deliver it to your door.

Amitriptyline is an anti-depressant medicine but it’s prescribed every day across the US for migraines. It's a pill (oral medicine) in the tricyclic antidepressant class of medicines. You don’t need to have depression to get Amitriptyline for migraines.

The generic is just as effective as the brand name versions called Amitid, Amitril, Elavil or Endep.

How can Amitriptyline help with migraines?

Amitriptyline can help prevent future migraine attacks if you take it every day.

How effective is Amitriptyline in treating migraines?

Amitriptyline is generally effective at helping prevent future migraines but it isn’t guaranteed to work.

It’s important to understand that you’ll probably need to take it for at least two months before you notice the difference.

If it works it should:

  • Cut the number of migraines you have in half
  • Shorten how many days migraines last when you get them
  • Help your body respond better to the migraine medicines you take when you actually get a migraine attack (acute medicine)

What dosages does Amitriptyline come in for migraines?

Amitriptyline 10mg, taken once daily at bedtime, is the starting dose we recommend for migraines. We also offer higher doses including 25mg and 50mg. If you take or require doses higher than 50mg, then you should see a doctor in person.

Is Amitriptyline FDA-approved for migraines?

No. It’s approved by the FDA for depression, but not for migraines. Nevertheless, doctors across the US prescribe it for migraines each and every day. When our medical team prescribes it for migraines the prescription is called ‘off-label’ use.

Why do I need a doctor’s prescription for Amitriptyline?

You need a doctor’s prescription because under US federal law it’s a prescription-medicine. With Lemonaid Health you can get the doctor’s prescription you need without having to see a doctor in person.
