What is Elavil?

 

Elavil (amitriptyline) is a tricyclic antidepressant.

Elavil affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with depression.

Elavil is used to treat symptoms of depression.

 

Important information

You should not use Elavil if you have recently had a heart attack.

 

Do not use Elavil if you have used an MAO inhibitor in the past 14 days, such as isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, or tranylcypromine.

 

Before taking Elavil, tell your doctor if you have used an "SSRI" antidepressant in the past 5 weeks, such as citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem, Symbyax), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil), or sertraline (Zoloft).

Fighting the Fight: Fibromyalgia Explained

You may have thoughts about suicide when you first start taking an antidepressant such as Elavil, especially if you are younger than 24 years old. Your doctor will need to check you at regular visits for at least the first 12 weeks of treatment.

 

Report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor, such as: mood or behavior changes, anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, or if you feel impulsive, irritable, agitated, hostile, aggressive, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically), more depressed, or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself.

 

Before taking this medicine

You should not use Elavil if you are allergic to amitriptyline, or:

 

if you have recently had a heart attack.

Do not use Elavil if you have used an MAO inhibitor in the past 14 days. A dangerous drug interaction could occur. MAO inhibitors include isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine, and others.

 

To make sure Elavil is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

·         bipolar disorder (manic-depression) or schizophrenia;

·         a history of mental illness or psychosis;

·         liver disease;

·         heart disease;

·         a history of heart attack, stroke, or seizures;

·         diabetes (amitriptyline may raise or lower blood sugar);

·         glaucoma; or

·         problems with urination.

 

Some young people have thoughts about suicide when first taking an antidepressant. Your doctor should check your progress at regular visits. Your family or other caregivers should also be alert to changes in your mood or symptoms.

 

It is not known whether amitriptyline will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using Elavil.

 

Amitriptyline can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while you are using Elavil.

 

Elavil is not approved for use by anyone younger than 12 years old.

 

How should I take Elavil?

Take Elavil exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

 

It may take up to 4 weeks before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed and tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve.

 

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using Elavil. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time.

 

Do not stop using Elavil suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to safely stop using Elavil.

 

Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.
