Re: Elavil and LPR

My opinion is that Elavil can actually make LPR worse. It's a tricyclic antidepressant and like other tricyclics they can have severe anticholinergic effects such as weakening your valves and causing reflux. I took a similar antidepressant three years ago and it did in fact make my reflux much worse.
