Once you know how Elavil affects you, you can take accordingly.
several years ago I took this medication for a short time, one of the things that it did to me was cause sedation it is one of the older medicines that is used as an antidepressant and it is known for it's sedative effects, it contains amitriptyline, it is made up in oral tablets of 10mg, 25mg, 50mg, 75mg, 100mg, and I believe a 150mg tablet, medicines affect people in many different ways it may be that once your system adjust to taking this it may be that you will adjust to this, I don't know what your doctor has told you concerning times to take this you might take it at night and you might adjust better trying using it that way or you might discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist if this is a problem for you. hopefully you will adjust and it will not be a big problem for you, I wish you only the very best
