Quote from Katinthebag81:I agree with JD - amitryptaline is good. The brand name is Elavil. I took it for depression some years ago (before all the new anti-d's came out.)
It worked quite well for me for depression. Good luck. Some of the national drug chains will give you quotes for Rx drugs if you know the name and dosage of the med.
Hey guys, haven't been on here in a while, but anyway... I am familiar with the Elavil
, I was on it when I wrote the original post, my PM Doc had me on it 1 tab at night to help me slowly get off Methadone
, and also to help me relax so I can sleep...but I was also taking Zoloft
of the morning, for depression... I now take 1- 100 mg Zoloft
in the AM, and 1 -25mg tab of Elavil
in the PM before bed, along with Methadone
at night (yes back on the Methadone
) but anyway, the thing I am experiencing now is that I dont feel the Zoloft
or the Elavil
are helping the depression, and the Elavil
is not helping me sleep at night, doesnt even make me sleep anymore..... I still cant motivate myself to get out of bed during the day or get out and go anywhere...just dont feel like it, basically wanna lay in bed and sleep all day, they just upped my Zoloft
a couple months ago to 100 mg... but I still dont really feel any difference..so I dont know what I am gonna do, I am supposed to go back to my PM doc this week, so hopefully they can suggest something, Anyone else have any suggestions, PLEASE let me know... OK?
