What is Amitriptyline? 

Amitriptyline, also sold as Elavil, is used to treat mood problems and mental conditions, such as depression. It works by helping to balance the natural chemicals in the brain, neurotransmitters such as serotonin, to relieve anxiety, tension and increase energy levels. Amitriptyline is classified as a class of medication known as tricyclic antidepressants.


How to take Amitriptyline?

Amitriptyline is taken orally, usually between 1 and 4 times per day, or as directed by your doctor. In adults, this is usually an initial dose of 50mg daily, which can be increased by 25mg every other day up to 150g daily, divided into two doses, if deemed necessary by your doctor.

It’s important to continue taking amitriptyline regularly, even if you begin to feel better, and to take it at the same time each day for the most benefit. This medication may not work immediately and may take up to 4 weeks for you to feel the full benefits.


Precautions with Amitriptyline?

Before taking Amitriptyline, inform your doctor or pharmacist of any allergies, including bleeding or breathing problems, issues with your liver, recent heart problems, trouble urinating (such as that due to an enlarged prostate), overactive thyroid, glaucoma, any mental health problems, family history of suicide or seizures. Older adults may experience these side effects more severely.

Amitriptyline may cause a condition known as GT prolongation, which can in rare cases cause a fast or irregular heartbeat, which requires immediate medical attention. The risk of developing this condition may be increased by certain drugs, low levels of potassium or magnesium in the blood, or if you have medical conditions such as heart problems.

This medication can make you more sensitive to the sun, so limit your exposure, and avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Inform your doctor immediately if you develop blisters or get sun burned.

If you suffer with diabetes, Amitriptyline can make it more difficult to monitor your blood sugar levels – your doctor may need to adjust your diabetes medication, diet or exercise program.


Side effects of Amitriptyline?

Possible side effects of Amitriptyline include:

  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Blurred vision
  • Constipation
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Tiredness
  • Headaches


If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice. Do not stop taking this medication without consulting with your doctor, as stopping treatment must occur gradually to avoid worsening the side effects.
