Elavil is used for treatment of depression.
Elavil comes as a tablet to take by mouth. The general dosage for it is 1-4 times daily. It can be taken with or without a food. For best effect Elavil should be taken regularly for a couple of weeks. Even you feel better do not stop taking Elavil without your physician`s approval. If you have been taking Elavil in large doses or for a long time, your doctor will most likely want to gradually lower your dosage before you stop taking this drug. Don't take more or less of this pill, than your physician has prescribed to you.
Be careful when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. If you experience dizziness or drowsiness, avoid these activities. Be careful when taking alcohol during your treatment. It may increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking Elavil. Do not stop taking Elavil without your physician`s approval.
