Elavil is used for treatment of depression.
Elavil comes as a pill to take orally. The general dose for it is 1-4 times daily. It may 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 physician will most likely want to gradually lower your dosage before you stop taking this medicine. Do not take more or less of this drug, than your physician has suggested 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 healing. It may increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking Elavil. Do not stop taking Elavil without your physician`s approval.
