Why won't these headaches go away ?

After I overdosed back in November 2017 I started getting a anxiety problem which I think might've brought on the headaches. I've been to the hospital multiple times about them and each time they tell me it's "migraines" but the headaches won't seem to go away. I don't know what to do anymore about them I feel like they have gotten worst they have started to affect my everyday life.What should I do ?

Ask your doctor if you can try Elavil (Amitriptyline is the generic).  I've been taking this daily for about 11 years now for migraine prevention.  The generic only costs about $4/mth.  Before I found this med, I would get migraines about 8 times each month.  Over time, the migraines became less often, and less severe.  Now, I might have 3 a year.  -  Hope you find some relief soon!!
