Need advice for dealing with withdrawal from amitriptyline

I have tried multiple times over the years to ease off of amitriptyline since it doesn't help my migraines and it also destroyed my memory. By every time I get below 5 mg a night, I get restless legs, insomnia, and irritability. How long does withdrawal from this drug last? I always quit trying to go off the medicine because I hate those withdrawal symptoms and don't know when they will end. Is there any supplement I can take to help with the withdrawal symptoms?
