In brief: Amitriptylene

Brand name Elavil (amitriptyline) was discontinued in the usa around 2003, and the remaining supplies sold until exhausted.
Multiple companies, however, make generic amitriptylene -- including in 150mg dose. Your concerns about brand name vs generic are not uncommon, though. Sorry. Hopefully you and your doctor can find a regimen that helps you. Be well, .
