The pill M51 is round and green. Does this help with high blood pressure?

Hi,

No it does not help.

"Medical uses[edit]

Two boxes of amitriptyline (Endep) in 10- and 25-mg doses
Amitriptyline is used for a number of medical conditions including major depressive disorder (MDD).[11][12][13] Some evidence suggests amitriptyline may be more effective than other antidepressants,[14] including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs),[15] although it is rarely used as a first-line antidepressant due to its higher toxicity in overdose and generally poorer tolerability.[12]

It is TGA-labeled for migraine prevention, also in cases of neuropathic pain disorders,[12] fibromyalgia[4] and nocturnal enuresis.[12][16] Amitriptyline is a popular off-label treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),[17] although it is most frequently reserved for severe cases of abdominal pain in patients with IBS because it needs to be taken regularly to work and has a generally poor tolerability profile, although a firm evidence base supports its efficacy in this indication.[17] Amitriptyline can also be used as an anticholinergic drug in the treatment of early-stage Parkinson's disease if depression also needs to be treated.[18] Amitriptyline is the most widely researched agent for prevention of frequent tension headaches.[19]"
