Question about elavil?
im confused if this is used for depression or anxiety? my dr prescribed it to relax me and said it is or has a sedative effect, i do get anxiety but most of what i read about it it all says it is for depression---help!:) thank you Asked by Asley Laforte 1 year ago.

Why is Elavil prescribed? Elavil is prescribed for the relief of symptoms of mental depression. It is a member of the group of drugs called tricyclic antidepressants. Some doctors also prescribe Elavil to treat bulimia (an eating disorder), to control chronic pain, to prevent migraine headaches, and to treat a pathological weeping and laughing syndrome associated with multiple sclerosis. Most important fact about Elavil You may need to take Elavil regularly for several weeks before it becomes fully effective. Do not skip doses, even if they seem to make no difference or you feel you don't need them. --------------------------------------... How should you take Elavil? Take Elavil exactly as prescribed. You may experience side effects, such as mild drowsiness, early in therapy. However, they usually disappear after a few days. Beneficial effects may take as long as 30 days to appear. Elavil may cause dry mouth. Sucking a hard candy, chewing gum, or melting bits of ice in your mouth can provide relief. --If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses at the same time. If you take a single daily dose at bedtime, do not make up for it in the morning. It may cause side effects during the day. --Storage instructions... Keep Elavil in a tightly closed container. Store at room temperature. Protect from light and excessive heat. --------------------------------------... What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Elavil. Older adults are especially liable to certain side effects of Elavil, including rapid heartbeat, constipation, dry mouth, blurred vision, sedation, and confusion, and are in greater danger of sustaining a fall. More common side effects may include: Blurred vision, bone marrow depression, bowel problems, breast enlargement (in males and females), constipation, dry mouth, hair loss, heart attack, high body temperature, problems urinating, rash, seizure, stroke, swelling of the testicles, water retention Side effects due to a rapid decrease in dose or abrupt withdrawal from Elavil include: Headache, nausea, vague feeling of bodily discomfort Side effects due to gradual dosage reduction may include: Dream and sleep disturbances, irritability, restlessness These side effects do not signify an addiction to the drug. --------------------------------------... Why should Elavil not be prescribed? If you are sensitive to or have ever had an allergic reaction to Elavil or similar drugs such as Norpramin and Tofranil, you should not take this medication. Make sure your doctor is aware of any drug reactions you have experienced. Answered by Yadira Arebela 1 year ago.

How well does the antidepressant Elavil work?
Has anyone had any bad side effects or anything weird happen from taking this medicine. Asked by Kiana Nestor 1 year ago.

Elavil, a tricyclic antidepressant is considered "dirty" with respect to receptor affinity. Prior to the advent of the SSRIs, tricyclics were pretty much all we had to treat depression and related conditions. Elavil, like other tricyclics has a number of very serious adverse effects, e.g. potential arrythmia and so forth. Some psychiatrists still use Elavil as an adjunct to SSRIs but at relatively small doses, e.g. 25 mg. My personal opinion is that if you can avoid Elavil, for whatever indication, then you should as it's not a benign agent and it's hard to predict how any one individual will tolerate it. If, however, your physician feels that it's appropriate for you, then it's likely s/he has more knowledge of your particular history and other critical information so your physician's opinion should supercede anything I might suggest.

I know that both of these are anti-depressants but a friend of mine takes Paxil and tried Elavil for migraine prevention. (Her doctor made her try both.....She's still on the Paxil.....) What would happen if she took the Paxil she is supposed to take and took one of the Elavils later on in the day? What side affects would it possibly cause? Can you mix the two? Answered by Latanya Leftridge 1 year ago.

Elavil is a very old anti-depressant, and some have found that it helps with pain--others say it helps them sleep. It is in a different category than Paxil, which is in the category with Prozac. When my doctor wanted me to switch from Elavil to Paxil, he let me take a gradually lower dose of Elavil, and gradually higher dose of Paxil. For me, Prozac and later Paxil, did nothing, so I was put back on Elavil. Some people, however, say that Prozac or Paxil made them a new person. I would tell her to ask her doctor about taking Elavil and Paxil together--it may depend upon how high the doseages of each are. Answered by Selene Swaggert 1 year ago.

You should NEVER take medication unless your doctor says it's safe. In her case, she needs to call her dr or pharmacist and make sure that the strenghts of the drugs and doses that she's taking is safe to take together.

So, I finally took Elavil last night for nerve pain. I have a pinched nerve on my neck. Doctor prescribed me 50 mg and I only took half of the pill. Immediately after I took it, I def felt relaxation. But an hour later, I was slurring my words and becoming extremely drowsy. I definately had deep sleep from this drug last night. Anyone else have this problem with Elavil? Is it ok to cut the pill so its less dose? I'm actually thinking of cutting it in 4 pieces so its about 12 mg each. Whats your reaction to this medicine??? Answered by Felica Clapper 1 year ago.

when I took elavil, I don't recall slurred speech, but I did get the deep sleep your talking about. That will go away in about a week as you get used to the medication. Something to watch out for, elavil caused me to gain 80 Lbs. I didn't know about this but it caused food cravings for me. So watch for those. I switched from Elavil to Neurontin then to Topamax which helped me drop all the weight I gained on Elavil. I really didn't like Elavil at all. But I wouldn't cut the dose except in half as you come onto the medication. Cut it in half for the first week, then take the full pill the second week. All that will do is make the side effects you are having now last for two weeks instead of one week. Though they will most likely be much more subdued because by the first week you'll be used to the half dosage and the second week it won't be as much of a shock to the system to be taking the entire pill. It's up to you, I'd talk to your doctor before doing that though and double check that it's okay. Explain that you are having strong side effects like the slurred speech which concerns you. Ask if it's okay to cut the pill in half for the first week to get used to it then take the full dose the second week. Also ask about the weight gain side effect. Since I have joints that dislocate easily I have to watch my weight carefully, added weight makes my pain levels go up. So any medication that causes weight gain is not an option for me =(. But I took Elavil like twelve years ago? Yeah I think that's right. Good luck =) hope it helps you out.

No ought to be troubled, they are dozing drugs. Have you been dozing commonly? If so then slurred speech is only a part influence.

Some quack told me that elavil can kill?
have you ever heard of somebody dying from elavil alone or in combination with other meds? Asked by Christa Jamon 1 year ago.

I was prescribed ELAVIL and it did send me into a coma for three days when, after begging my DR to take me off and he refused... so I took myself off. I drove an industrial narrow aisle reach truck for a living at the time and the ringing in my ears from the ELAVIL limited my hearing. My DR wrote me a work release for two weeks that my employer said he didnt have to honor, so I worked for two more weeks with my ears ringing so loudly from ELAVIL that safety became a very large issue. My DR still refused to wean me off, so when I choose to "cold turkey" ELAVIL, I went into a three day coma. I consulted a second DR who told me that "ELAVIL was misprescribed" to me. THAT coma change my life radically, for when I did, my husband of nearly 22 years filed for divorce, blaming me for what went wrong. Our son did/does too. My mother was the only one who understood the entire truth (save for the second DR) and she passed away about three years ago. I would love to be in a class action suit against ASTRAZENECA.

What works better for insomnia elavil or seroquel?
Asked by Bailey Lasater 1 year ago.

One of elavil's side effects is drowsiness and from experience I know personally that it can knock you out! Of course, each drug affects each person differently so it's possible that while elavil knocks me out, seroquel may do the same for you while elavil may not. Unfortunately, it's kind of a guess and then you figure out which is best for you after trying a few. Personally, the elavil was supposed to help my migraines. It didn't touch them so I tried a bunch of other medications, even some in different drug classifications. There are always OTC's that help with sleep, too. Some can get away with just taking melatonin every night. Others are made very sleepy by Benadryl and then there are always different over the counter mixes of herbs or medications to make you fall asleep. The problem with those is that you risk dependence. Either way, it's always best to talk to a doctor before choosing any medication, OTC or prescription! Good luck! Answered by Tara Bijan 1 year ago.

Why is Elavil prescribed? Elavil is prescribed for the relief of symptoms of mental depression. It is a member of the group of drugs called tricyclic antidepressants. Some doctors also prescribe Elavil to treat bulimia (an eating disorder), to control chronic pain, to prevent migraine headaches, and to treat a pathological weeping and laughing syndrome associated with multiple sclerosis. Most important fact about Elavil You may need to take Elavil regularly for several weeks before it becomes fully effective. Do not skip doses, even if they seem to make no difference or you feel you don't need them. --------------------------------------... How should you take Elavil? Take Elavil exactly as prescribed. You may experience side effects, such as mild drowsiness, early in therapy. However, they usually disappear after a few days. Beneficial effects may take as long as 30 days to appear. Elavil may cause dry mouth. Sucking a hard candy, chewing gum, or melting bits of ice in your mouth can provide relief. --If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses at the same time. If you take a single daily dose at bedtime, do not make up for it in the morning. It may cause side effects during the day. --Storage instructions... Keep Elavil in a tightly closed container. Store at room temperature. Protect from light and excessive heat. --------------------------------------... What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Elavil. Older adults are especially liable to certain side effects of Elavil, including rapid heartbeat, constipation, dry mouth, blurred vision, sedation, and confusion, and are in greater danger of sustaining a fall. More common side effects may include: Blurred vision, bone marrow depression, bowel problems, breast enlargement (in males and females), constipation, dry mouth, hair loss, heart attack, high body temperature, problems urinating, rash, seizure, stroke, swelling of the testicles, water retention Side effects due to a rapid decrease in dose or abrupt withdrawal from Elavil include: Headache, nausea, vague feeling of bodily discomfort Side effects due to gradual dosage reduction may include: Dream and sleep disturbances, irritability, restlessness These side effects do not signify an addiction to the drug. --------------------------------------... Why should Elavil not be prescribed? If you are sensitive to or have ever had an allergic reaction to Elavil or similar drugs such as Norpramin and Tofranil, you should not take this medication. Make sure your doctor is aware of any drug reactions you have experienced. Answered by Alvina Prather 1 year ago.

How well does the antidepressant Elavil work?
Has anyone had any bad side effects or anything weird happen from taking this medicine. Asked by Marcell Elliot 1 year ago.

Elavil, a tricyclic antidepressant is considered "dirty" with respect to receptor affinity. Prior to the advent of the SSRIs, tricyclics were pretty much all we had to treat depression and related conditions. Elavil, like other tricyclics has a number of very serious adverse effects, e.g. potential arrythmia and so forth. Some psychiatrists still use Elavil as an adjunct to SSRIs but at relatively small doses, e.g. 25 mg. My personal opinion is that if you can avoid Elavil, for whatever indication, then you should as it's not a benign agent and it's hard to predict how any one individual will tolerate it. If, however, your physician feels that it's appropriate for you, then it's likely s/he has more knowledge of your particular history and other critical information so your physician's opinion should supercede anything I might suggest.

I drove an industrial narrow aisle reach truck for a living at the time and the ringing in my ears from the ELAVIL limited my hearing. My DR wrote me a work release for two weeks that my employer said he didnt have to honor, so I worked for two more weeks with my ears ringing so loudly from ELAVIL that safety became a very large issue. My DR still refused to wean me off, so when I choose to "cold turkey" ELAVIL, I went into a three day coma. I consulted a second DR who told me that "ELAVIL was misprescribed" to me. THAT coma change my life radically, for when I did, my husband of nearly 22 years filed for divorce, blaming me for what went wrong. Our son did/does too. My mother was the only one who understood the entire truth (save for the second DR) and she passed away about three years ago. I would love to be in a class action suit against ASTRAZENECA.

What works better for insomnia elavil or seroquel?
Asked by Mariel Ocampo 1 year ago.

One of elavil's side effects is drowsiness and from experience I know personally that it can knock you out! Of course, each drug affects each person differently so it's possible that while elavil knocks me out, seroquel may do the same for you while elavil may not. Unfortunately, it's kind of a guess and then you figure out which is best for you after trying a few. Personally, the elavil was supposed to help my migraines. It didn't touch them so I tried a bunch of other medications, even some in different drug classifications. There are always OTC's that help with sleep, too. Some can get away with just taking melatonin every night. Others are made very sleepy by Benadryl and then there are always different over the counter mixes of herbs or medications to make you fall asleep. The problem with those is that you risk dependence. Either way, it's always best to talk to a doctor before choosing any medication, OTC or prescription! Good luck! Answered by Robbie Haugabrook 1 year ago.

Why is Elavil prescribed? Elavil is prescribed for the relief of symptoms of mental depression. It is a member of the group of drugs called tricyclic antidepressants. Some doctors also prescribe Elavil to treat bulimia (an eating disorder), to control chronic pain, to prevent migraine headaches, and to treat a pathological weeping and laughing syndrome associated with multiple sclerosis. Most important fact about Elavil You may need to take Elavil regularly for several weeks before it becomes fully effective. Do not skip doses, even if they seem to make no difference or you feel you don't need them. --------------------------------------... How should you take Elavil? Take Elavil exactly as prescribed. You may experience side effects, such as mild drowsiness, early in therapy. However, they usually disappear after a few days. Beneficial effects may take as long as 30 days to appear. Elavil may cause dry mouth. Sucking a hard candy, chewing gum, or melting bits of ice in your mouth can provide relief. --If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses at the same time. If you take a single daily dose at bedtime, do not make up for it in the morning. It may cause side effects during the day. --Storage instructions... Keep Elavil in a tightly closed container. Store at room temperature. Protect from light and excessive heat. --------------------------------------... What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Elavil. Older adults are especially liable to certain side effects of Elavil, including rapid heartbeat, constipation, dry mouth, blurred vision, sedation, and confusion, and are in greater danger of sustaining a fall. More common side effects may include: Blurred vision, bone marrow depression, bowel problems, breast enlargement (in males and females), constipation, dry mouth, hair loss, heart attack, high body temperature, problems urinating, rash, seizure, stroke, swelling of the testicles, water retention Side effects due to a rapid decrease in dose or abrupt withdrawal from Elavil include: Headache, nausea, vague feeling of bodily discomfort Side effects due to gradual dosage reduction may include: Dream and sleep disturbances, irritability, restlessness These side effects do not signify an addiction to the drug. --------------------------------------...

How well does the antidepressant Elavil work?
Has anyone had any bad side effects or anything weird happen from taking this medicine. Asked by Candice Satterley 1 year ago.

Elavil, a tricyclic antidepressant is considered "dirty" with respect to receptor affinity. Prior to the advent of the SSRIs, tricyclics were pretty much all we had to treat depression and related conditions. Elavil, like other tricyclics has a number of very serious adverse effects, e.g. potential arrythmia and so forth. Some psychiatrists still use Elavil as an adjunct to SSRIs but at relatively small doses, e.g. 25 mg. My personal opinion is that if you can avoid Elavil, for whatever indication, then you should as it's not a benign agent and it's hard to predict how any one individual will tolerate it. If, however, your physician feels that it's appropriate for you, then it's likely s/he has more knowledge of your particular history and other critical information so your physician's opinion should supercede anything I might suggest. Best of luck. Answered by Candie Burchfiel 1 year ago.

What would happen if she took the Paxil she is supposed to take and took one of the Elavils later on in the day? What side affects would it possibly cause? Can you mix the two? Answered by Freida Forslund 1 year ago.

Elavil is a very old anti-depressant, and some have found that it helps with pain--others say it helps them sleep. It is in a different category than Paxil, which is in the category with Prozac. When my doctor wanted me to switch from Elavil to Paxil, he let me take a gradually lower dose of Elavil, and gradually higher dose of Paxil. For me, Prozac and later Paxil, did nothing, so I was put back on Elavil. Some people, however, say that Prozac or Paxil made them a new person. I would tell her to ask her doctor about taking Elavil and Paxil together--it may depend upon how high the doseages of each are. Answered by Velma Pitzen 1 year ago.

You should NEVER take medication unless your doctor says it's safe.

So, I finally took Elavil last night for nerve pain. I have a pinched nerve on my neck. Doctor prescribed me 50 mg and I only took half of the pill. Immediately after I took it, I def felt relaxation. But an hour later, I was slurring my words and becoming extremely drowsy. I definately had deep sleep from this drug last night. Anyone else have this problem with Elavil? Is it ok to cut the pill so its less dose? I'm actually thinking of cutting it in 4 pieces so its about 12 mg each. Whats your reaction to this medicine??? Answered by Samual Zapf 1 year ago.

when I took elavil, I don't recall slurred speech, but I did get the deep sleep your talking about. That will go away in about a week as you get used to the medication. Something to watch out for, elavil caused me to gain 80 Lbs. I didn't know about this but it caused food cravings for me. So watch for those. I switched from Elavil to Neurontin then to Topamax which helped me drop all the weight I gained on Elavil. I really didn't like Elavil at all. But I wouldn't cut the dose except in half as you come onto the medication. Cut it in half for the first week, then take the full pill the second week. All that will do is make the side effects you are having now last for two weeks instead of one week. Though they will most likely be much more subdued because by the first week you'll be used to the half dosage and the second week it won't be as much of a shock to the system to be taking the entire pill. It's up to you, I'd talk to your doctor before doing that though and double check that it's okay. Explain that you are having strong side effects like the slurred speech which concerns you. Ask if it's okay to cut the pill in half for the first week to get used to it then take the full dose the second week. Also ask about the weight gain side effect. Since I have joints that dislocate easily I have to watch my weight carefully, added weight makes my pain levels go up. So any medication that causes weight gain is not an option for me =(. But I took Elavil like twelve years ago? Yeah I think that's right. Good luck =) hope it helps you out. If it doesn't ask your doctor about one of the other medications I listed, see if they'll help you, or ask if he/she has another suggestion for you. Answered by Theresa Daguerre 1 year ago.

No ought to be troubled, they are dozing drugs. Have you been dozing commonly? If so then slurred speech is only a part influence. If you have not then your frame remains to be experiencing the drugs themselves and also you will have to actually return to mattress. Your quality wager, despite the fact that, might be to return to the medical professional that prescribed them to you, as they're going to recognise the quality solution to manage this. Everybody's frame reacts otherwise to all therapy so this is not a gigantic shock. You will have to surely seek advice with a paid reliable, despite the fact that, earlier than doing whatever approximately it.

How well does the antidepressant Elavil work?
Has anyone had any bad side effects or anything weird happen from taking this medicine. Asked by Daina Dasouza 1 year ago.

Elavil, a tricyclic antidepressant is considered "dirty" with respect to receptor affinity. Prior to the advent of the SSRIs, tricyclics were pretty much all we had to treat depression and related conditions. Elavil, like other tricyclics has a number of very serious adverse effects, e.g. potential arrythmia and so forth. Some psychiatrists still use Elavil as an adjunct to SSRIs but at relatively small doses, e.g. 25 mg. My personal opinion is that if you can avoid Elavil, for whatever indication, then you should as it's not a benign agent and it's hard to predict how any one individual will tolerate it. If, however, your physician feels that it's appropriate for you, then it's likely s/he has more knowledge of your particular history and other critical information so your physician's opinion should supercede anything I might suggest. Best of luck. Answered by Lieselotte Vannuland 1 year ago.

I know that both of these are anti-depressants but a friend of mine takes Paxil and tried Elavil for migraine prevention. (Her doctor made her try both.....She's still on the Paxil.....) What would happen if she took the Paxil she is supposed to take and took one of the Elavils later on in the day? What side affects would it possibly cause? Can you mix the two? Answered by Antonietta Mignano 1 year ago.

Elavil is a very old anti-depressant, and some have found that it helps with pain--others say it helps them sleep. It is in a different category than Paxil, which is in the category with Prozac. When my doctor wanted me to switch from Elavil to Paxil, he let me take a gradually lower dose of Elavil, and gradually higher dose of Paxil. For me, Prozac and later Paxil, did nothing, so I was put back on Elavil. Some people, however, say that Prozac or Paxil made them a new person. I would tell her to ask her doctor about taking Elavil and Paxil together--it may depend upon how high the doseages of each are. Answered by Neda Mcgreal 1 year ago.

You should NEVER take medication unless your doctor says it's safe. In her case, she needs to call her dr or pharmacist and make sure that the strenghts of the drugs and doses that she's taking is safe to take together. I work in a pharmacy, but I am unaware of the dangers that it would pose not knowing the strengths of her drugs. Answered by Darline Agar 1 year ago.

So, I finally took Elavil last night for nerve pain. I have a pinched nerve on my neck. Doctor prescribed me 50 mg and I only took half of the pill. Immediately after I took it, I def felt relaxation. But an hour later, I was slurring my words and becoming extremely drowsy. I definately had deep sleep from this drug last night. Anyone else have this problem with Elavil? Is it ok to cut the pill so its less dose? I'm actually thinking of cutting it in 4 pieces so its about 12 mg each. Whats your reaction to this medicine??? Answered by Paula Osorno 1 year ago.

when I took elavil, I don't recall slurred speech, but I did get the deep sleep your talking about. That will go away in about a week as you get used to the medication. Something to watch out for, elavil caused me to gain 80 Lbs. I didn't know about this but it caused food cravings for me. So watch for those. I switched from Elavil to Neurontin then to Topamax which helped me drop all the weight I gained on Elavil. I really didn't like Elavil at all. But I wouldn't cut the dose except in half as you come onto the medication. Cut it in half for the first week, then take the full pill the second week. All that will do is make the side effects you are having now last for two weeks instead of one week. Though they will most likely be much more subdued because by the first week you'll be used to the half dosage and the second week it won't be as much of a shock to the system to be taking the entire pill. It's up to you, I'd talk to your doctor before doing that though and double check that it's okay. Explain that you are having strong side effects like the slurred speech which concerns you. Ask if it's okay to cut the pill in half for the first week to get used to it then take the full dose the second week. Also ask about the weight gain side effect. Since I have joints that dislocate easily I have to watch my weight carefully, added weight makes my pain levels go up. So any medication that causes weight gain is not an option for me =(. But I took Elavil like twelve years ago? Yeah I think that's right. Good luck =) hope it helps you out. If it doesn't ask your doctor about one of the other medications I listed, see if they'll help you, or ask if he/she has another suggestion for you. Answered by Sara Tewari 1 year ago.

No ought to be troubled, they are dozing drugs. Have you been dozing commonly? If so then slurred speech is only a part influence. If you have not then your frame remains to be experiencing the drugs themselves and also you will have to actually return to mattress. Your quality wager, despite the fact that, might be to return to the medical professional that prescribed them to you, as they're going to recognise the quality solution to manage this. Everybody's frame reacts otherwise to all therapy so this is not a gigantic shock. You will have to surely seek advice with a paid reliable, despite the fact that, earlier than doing whatever approximately it.

Some quack told me that elavil can kill?
have you ever heard of somebody dying from elavil alone or in combination with other meds? Asked by Gillian Leikam 1 year ago.

I was prescribed ELAVIL and it did send me into a coma for three days when, after begging my DR to take me off and he refused... so I took myself off. I drove an industrial narrow aisle reach truck for a living at the time and the ringing in my ears from the ELAVIL limited my hearing. My DR wrote me a work release for two weeks that my employer said he didnt have to honor, so I worked for two more weeks with my ears ringing so loudly from ELAVIL that safety became a very large issue. My DR still refused to wean me off, so when I choose to "cold turkey" ELAVIL, I went into a three day coma. I consulted a second DR who told me that "ELAVIL was misprescribed" to me. THAT coma change my life radically, for when I did, my husband of nearly 22 years filed for divorce, blaming me for what went wrong. Our son did/does too. My mother was the only one who understood the entire truth (save for the second DR) and she passed away about three years ago. I would love to be in a class action suit against ASTRAZENECA. Time statute has lapsed and even with TOLLING of the statute of the time limitations, this case would not be an easy one to have heard up. Answered by Britni Freeburg 1 year ago.


What works better for insomnia elavil or seroquel?
Asked by Margaret Tasch 1 year ago.

One of elavil's side effects is drowsiness and from experience I know personally that it can knock you out! Of course, each drug affects each person differently so it's possible that while elavil knocks me out, seroquel may do the same for you while elavil may not. Unfortunately, it's kind of a guess and then you figure out which is best for you after trying a few. Personally, the elavil was supposed to help my migraines. It didn't touch them so I tried a bunch of other medications, even some in different drug classifications. There are always OTC's that help with sleep, too. Some can get away with just taking melatonin every night. Others are made very sleepy by Benadryl and then there are always different over the counter mixes of herbs or medications to make you fall asleep. The problem with those is that you risk dependence. Either way, it's always best to talk to a doctor before choosing any medication, OTC or prescription! Good luck! Answered by Eliseo Quiel 1 year ago.

Question about elavil?
im confused if this is used for depression or anxiety? my dr prescribed it to relax me and said it is or has a sedative effect, i do get anxiety but most of what i read about it it all says it is for depression---help!:) thank you Asked by Britany Oliverson 1 year ago.

Why is Elavil prescribed? Elavil is prescribed for the relief of symptoms of mental depression. It is a member of the group of drugs called tricyclic antidepressants. Some doctors also prescribe Elavil to treat bulimia (an eating disorder), to control chronic pain, to prevent migraine headaches, and to treat a pathological weeping and laughing syndrome associated with multiple sclerosis. Most important fact about Elavil You may need to take Elavil regularly for several weeks before it becomes fully effective. Do not skip doses, even if they seem to make no difference or you feel you don't need them. --------------------------------------... How should you take Elavil? Take Elavil exactly as prescribed. You may experience side effects, such as mild drowsiness, early in therapy. However, they usually disappear after a few days. Beneficial effects may take as long as 30 days to appear. Elavil may cause dry mouth. Sucking a hard candy, chewing gum, or melting bits of ice in your mouth can provide relief. --If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses at the same time. If you take a single daily dose at bedtime, do not make up for it in the morning. It may cause side effects during the day. --Storage instructions... Keep Elavil in a tightly closed container. Store at room temperature. Protect from light and excessive heat. --------------------------------------... What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Elavil. Older adults are especially liable to certain side effects of Elavil, including rapid heartbeat, constipation, dry mouth, blurred vision, sedation, and confusion, and are in greater danger of sustaining a fall. More common side effects may include: Blurred vision, bone marrow depression, bowel problems, breast enlargement (in males and females), constipation, dry mouth, hair loss, heart attack, high body temperature, problems urinating, rash, seizure, stroke, swelling of the testicles, water retention Side effects due to a rapid decrease in dose or abrupt withdrawal from Elavil include: Headache, nausea, vague feeling of bodily discomfort Side effects due to gradual dosage reduction may include: Dream and sleep disturbances, irritability, restlessness These side effects do not signify an addiction to the drug. --------------------------------------... Why should Elavil not be prescribed? If you are sensitive to or have ever had an allergic reaction to Elavil or similar drugs such as Norpramin and Tofranil, you should not take this medication. Make sure your doctor is aware of any drug reactions you have experienced. Answered by Myriam Rua 1 year ago.
