My GP gave me the sleeping pill zopiclone but only to be taken every 2 -3 Yes this is the problem with amantadine as a stimulant not only do you get the dry. Have just been prescribed 25 mg I'm on Elavil/amitriptyline right now for aiding in depression and sleep, however I am also taking Seroquel, compazine, and hydroxyzine I have been taking amitriptyline for over 4 years now, both for an added aid for high blood pressure, and sleep.
My neurologist has prescribed amitriptyline (Elavil) for migraine +/- sleep issues. I took the first dose, 10 mg, last night.
Today I am Elmer Fudd. When you first start amitriptyline, you will often find that you sleep better at night feel sleepy in the morning, but many wake up easily and have no problems.
Users share their experience with Elavil and comment on drug side effects, I was prescibed 10 mg dosage at 8pm to help with sleeplessness, irritable bowel.
