Advice & Tips: Elavil is becoming unfamiliar with psychiatrists these days; they seem to feel that the old tricylics don't work as well as all the SSRI's that are out there now. Personally, over the vast amount of years with my psychiatrist, we tried everything from A-Z......always came back to Elavil. The SSRI's had terrible side effects & did not work as well. I think it's been quite effective! The weight gain used to be bad until I was dxed w/ Type 2 Diabetes (not on medication/just diet & exercise & glucose monitoring daily) Now I've been losing weight.
