I have been taking Amitriptyline 50mg for severe migraine and Escitalopram 20mg for the past 5 years. My GP has decided this combination is not a good idea because of heart risks and I have been told to come off of the Amitriptyline. Over the last month I have cut my dose of Amitriptyline from 50mg to 40mg and bang 2 very severe migraines. Am at a loss of what to do as Amitriptyline is the only med that has ever helped my migraines has been marvellous and almost stopping them (of course there is the weight gain, fatigue etc). I am reticient to go back to 50mg because now I have the worry of QT wave heart effects from this combination of drugs.
