In brief: Elavil (amitriptyline)
At low dose, yes, if not conflict with other medications you are on, and if insomnia is secondary to depression

In brief: Amitrypline
Amitrypline or ellavil is used for depression, anxiety, chronic pain syndromes.
Its usually not recommended for insomnia as it possibly alters rem sleep and also has cardiac side effects unless you have comorbid depression or anxiety.
