I was recently prescribed 25 mg of Elavil for Insomnia, and combination of Anxiety. I have only taken the medication for a week, and it does not seem to help with the insomnia. However, is this medication something that has to "get into your system" before it works? I know that is relevant for anxiety, but for insomnia, too? Reading others' reviews, I noticed 25 mg seems to be a small dosage for my condition. I will speak to my Doctor about this (if needed), but I am just wondering if anyone has any information or experiences that pertains to my question. Please, any info. will be greatly appreciated?
