Thanks for your question.
Elavil contains amitriptylline.
Elavil also helps in calming down the nerve fibers carrying pain sensation.
This is not a dangerous medication.
In fact elavil can be used safely upto 75 mg daily.
It is unlikely you are going to have any significant side effects.
Common side effects can be drowsiness, dryness of mouth.
That is why this is taken at bedtime to help with the sleep as well.
