I started to take 25 mg of elavil last night for my insomnia and anxiety. I have felt spacey and weird all day. I start a new job on monday and do not want to feel this way. Should I discontinue to take it or will this feeling pass by sunday or monday latest?
Elavil is used for:
Treating depression. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Elavil is a tricyclic antidepressant. How tricyclic antidepressants improve depression symptoms is not fully understood. They are thought to increase the activity of certain chemicals in the brain (norepinephrine, serotonin), which help improve mood.
I would strongly suggest to call your health pervider and tell them of your problem
