:I know how you feel. I requested Elavil for a chronic pain problem I have with a foot, and it does work on the pain... BUT.. I have experienced alot of negative side effects to it.. tonight was a particular bad night.. oncontrollable crying more depression etc. I work in the pharmacy field, and I can tell you it is NOT recommended to take elavil with Zoloft or any of the SSRI drugs. Personally for me I am now in the process
of lowering my elavil, going off of it and going back on Zoloft. Elavil is a very good drug for chronic pain, but you have to outweigh the negative side effects to the benefits, and there
are alot of side effects to it.
Good luck
: MY PSCHIATRIST PRESCRIBED TRAZADONE 50MG TO ME FOR SLEEP ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO, BUT HAVE RECENTLY BEEN IN A MAJOR CAR ACCIDENT. SINCE THE ACCIDENT I HAVE BEEN GETTING CONSTANT TENSION HEADACHES. MY NEUROLIGIST HAS SUGGECSTED I TAKE ELAVIL FOR SLEEP AND THAT IT WILL HELP WITH THE HEADACHES. I TOOK THE ELAVIL FOR TWO DAYS AND HAD SOME SIDE AFFECTS BUT MOSTLY I AM CONCERNED BECAUSE THE TRAZADONE ALONG WITH 75MG ZOLOFT HAS HELPED ME A GREAT DEAL WITH MY DEPRESSION AND ANXIIOTY. I DON'T WANT THE TRAZADONE TO WEAR OF AND WAIT FOR THE ELAVIL TO KICK IN. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INPUT THAT COULD HELP ME WITH MY DECISION?
