I supposedly have Fibro and my Rheum had prescribed me Elavil a few yrs ago. I actually took it for quite some time. However, it did nothing for the pains I was having, but...I did help me sleep!!! And I slept soundly for the first time in a long time. So for me, that was the greatest thing about it. I could even time when I wanted to go to sleep. It was always about an hour after taking a pill that I fell asleep and I really zonked out. So If I wanted to stay up a little later to watch something, I just timed taking my pill so I would fall asleep when the show was over. I did not even want to stop taking it when I did. Aside from that, I had no side effects at all that I could recognize.
