Face-to-face: Unfortunately TCA (Amitriptyline ) medication monitoring must be done face-to-face or via video conferencing. The only allowable exception is when a patient is experiencing adverse symptoms from psychotropic medication and phone consultation with another professional is necessary. Call your doctor for appointment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My child just turned 3 months. I am exclusively breastfeeding But I started taking Elavil (amitriptyline) 10mg for bith my deppression and insomnia. I really do not stop breastfeedin 'n decided to continue. Okey????
Not the best : Elavil (amitriptyline) is one of the medications that will go into the breast milk if you are taking it. That means breast feeding while taking Elavil (amitriptyline) is like feeding tiny doses of Elvail to your baby. Please talk to your doctor and consider stopping wither the Elavil (amitriptyline) (and switching to something that does not go into breast milk) or breastfeeding. It is in your baby's best interest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was given 10mg Elavil (amitriptyline) for insomnia. Read up on drug, its an antidepressant. I don't have depression. Will this drug alter my mood or make me weird?
Weird, huh?: You didn't read far enough: You didn't read the information on indications and dosage. Antidepressant doses are at least 75-100 mg/d. It's also used for migraine at lower doses. It causes drowsiness, hence its use for sleep, but 10 mg is such a low dose it may have no effect on you at all, or lose what effect it does have after a week or so. It's usual to escalate the dose gradually to 30-50 mg/d. ...Read more
