For Anxiety "When I was in my early 20s I was having a great deal of anxiety and depression. This caused me to have physical problems as well such as GI problems and headaches and even some insomnia. My M.D. prescribed Triavil 4mg Trilafon / 10mg Elavil. This was many years ago and I remember that it had a very quick effect on me. Anxiety gone in one day and depression was almost totally eliminated in 4 weeks. I realize now that this is an older antidepressant/antianxiety medication but I believe it is much under prescribed as it helps not only with the emotional problems but helps with pain and sleep. It is somewhat sedating but one can take bigger doses at night and sleep very well. "

For Anxiety "I was going through a divorce, a miscarriage and loss of an important job plus career change. I was breaking down physically as well as mentally and was hospitalized for testing and observation by a cardiologist who diagnosed me with hypothyroidism and prescribed Triavil for me. IT WAS AMAZINGLY my lifechanger! IN just DAYS (less than 1 week) I was an entirely NEW woman whose issues were "healed" by my healed brain and ability to "handle" all my life's issues fearlessly in stride...thanks to my clear thinking triavil assisted body. This older medication is far too under prescribed and had only 1 adverse side affect which was I was so happy my appetite was voracious and I put on weight which I lost after a year. I Highly recommended TRIAVI"

For Anxiety "Back in the late 60's, I had been having bouts of diarrhea and went to a doctor in South Texas where I brought my previous medical records. After looking at my records, my new doctor said that I had not been having many bouts of 'Stomach Flu' as I had thought, He prescribed Triavil two tablets -25 and I took them. When I went back for a follow-up, the Dr. said that I had been living on 'nervous energy' for so long that this is why I needed this medicine. After the three days, I started living more normally and sleeping normally (8 hrs.). I stayed on the meds for a few months and from that time on I realized my problem and was able to adjust my living for the unexpected stresses in life and a few times I did use Triavil a few times. It's a wonderful drug and helped me from a lifetime of suffering needlessly. I would recommend this drug to anyone suffering from intestinal problems. At least talk to your doctor about the possible need."
