  • Sorry I can't help you, @dominica. This is the first I've heard of this medication.
  • i found out this is elavil...and that other is the generic...it's an anti-depressant...i think my friend is going to refrain from taking it. 

    sleep disorders...they are rough.
  • Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant. When you say your friend has sleep issues do you mean not being able to sleep (insomnia)? I ask because I know one person who is prescribed Amitriptyline to help her sleep due to her fibromyalgia, along with painkillers for the chronic pain. The problem is that it makes her sleep excessively and I fear that it has messed with her thought patterns to some extent. She's certainly not the person she used to be since taking them.
