Elavil is an excellent medication for depression, sleep and pain as well. It is one of the older antidepressants and has its side effects such as dry mouth, weight gain, excessive perspiration and tendency to be tired--which is why it is so good for falling asleep!
Elavil can be taken at small doses like 25 mgs. or the doseage can go up to a hundred mgs. depending on your condition, your need and your doctor.
I took elevil for depression for years and it worked great but had to stop it eventually for rapid heart rate, but I was taking 125 mg/day.
Good luck and I hope this helps.
