1 doctor agrees

In brief: Elavil (amitriptyline)

Elavil (amitriptyline) at low dose is prescribed due to its drying effect and at that dose would not treat depression.

In brief: Slows urination

Elavil, (amitriptyline) even at low doses, increases the tone of the muscles around the neck of the bladder which must relax when one urinates.
