Elavil can be cut in half. However, what would be the reason for decreasing the dosage, have you discussed this option with your Doctor?

I am taking 150 mg at night, both to help me sleep and to decrease pain from inflammatory arthritis. I have speech skips, uncontrolled movements at this dose. Those side effects were significantly less noticeable at a lower dosage. Thank you for your answer Dr. Joshi!

Hi sryall530, I must agree with the Dr., talk to your doc before doing this please. IF you are having serious side effects, call your doctor to inform him/her of your problems and ask if you can cut the dose.
