Migraine?: Elavil (amitriptyline) is well-known as a medication that can be very effective in the treatment of headaches, especially migraines (but not only). It is important to keep your doctor informed of how you are doing--and feel free to ask him or her any questions you have about your diagnosis and treatment!
