My sister was for over a decade. Then suddenly and unexpectedly, she died at the age of 57. Coroner's report said cause of death was acute amitriptyline toxicity. We can't understand how that could have happened. It does not seem that she overdosed. but wouldn't she have had side effects? should the MD have been monitoring with EKGs or serum blood levels?
