I have been put on Elavil at 10mg per day for my IBS, first off I have IBS-C so I dont know why they put me on elavil because I know one of the side effects is constipation, but Im also an insomniac and since being on elavil I have been able to sleep for 8 hours which is fantastic since that hasnt happened in years. Here is my issue, even at that low dose, my sex drive is gone. I had a pretty high sex drive before and now it is non existent and I also can no longer orgasm or it is very difficult to do so. Has anyone had this problem with Elavil? should I look for an alternative?
