Meds for sciatica relief?

I have seen my doctor about a month ago and have sciatica.  For sciatica I am only on Tylenol and Ibuprofen.  I am getting pain still and very locked up. I also take Clonazepam and 10 mg Amitriptyline for cyclic vomiting syndrome (or abdominal migraine). I have been on the same dose  for 30 years. I read that taking a higher dose than I  am on of Amitriptyline can help back pain. Do you recommend that I ask my doctor for a higher dose to try? Do you think it would bring the pain down some?
