I have been taking 20 mg at night for past few days. Today with heart palpitations. Anyone get this?
I would suggest that you please see your doctor as soon as possible.
Elavil can cause heart problems so you need to be checked out.
Both antiarrhythmic and proarrhythmic effects have been associated with the use of tricyclic antidepressant therapy. Caution is recommended if amitriptyline must be used in patients with cardiovascular disease.
Cardiovascular side effects have included orthostatic hypotension, tachycardia, QRS widening, conduction abnormalities, malignant arrhythmias, and malignant hypertension. Very rare cases of cardiomyopathy have also been reported.
