Red, I know nothing about the libido and for me it doesn't matter but I am interested in the fact that it is letting you sleep. I am an insomniac also and my Doctor and I discussed Elavil but then when I mentioned something else that dryed me out he said Elavil would dry me out also. Do you find that you mouth and eyes are dry. I am now taking Lunesta or some nights Xanax but Idon't like the way it makes me feel. I don't need an antidepressant but then I guess it couldn't hurt as that doesn't sound like a very strong dosage. Do you take it at night?
Sorry about the libido part. Did you look up side effects or read the paper to see if this is a known side effect. You can always go on
