... I feel for you spinalmalady, I had the same response. It is a brilliant drug though. 25mgs is a big starting dose and it's also what I started on. I slept wonderfully but couldn't wake up! I found taking it no later than 8pm helped because it is rather slow acting, so you can take it a bit earlier and not get too drowsy too quickly. I'd also try 12.5 mgs, I wish I'd started on...

... Well it is pretty obvious that you are too sedated by all of the medications being taken at night. If I were you I would stop taking the Ambien. Now please be aware that if you have taken it awhile(longer than 1 week) you are going to have some rebound insomnia. However, once you get past that(a few days), then you should be alright. I would stick with the Elavil for two... (4 replies)
... Hi! I don't know about the Elavil, but I just want to warn you not to fall asleep with the ice pack on. I left one on too long once and ended up with frostbite. Believe me, frostbite is not pleasant or pretty, so please be careful with the ice pack. Cat (4 replies)

... I just found a great PM doc about 6 weeks ago, and he put me on Elavil b/c I was not sleeping well due to pain (maybe 3-4 hours/night). So I started taking 25mg at bedtime, and it worked wonders from the first night - I slept like a baby. I had been sleeping on the couch since June, but just 3 weeks ago we got our new bed (a "memory foam" type mattress), so I don't know what... (8 replies)

Elavil question
Dec 11, 2007
... Elavil can be very helpful with neuropathic pain. I don't think combining it with Prozac will be a problem, as they are very different in how they work. I used to take it as a preventative for migraines but could not tolerate the side effects (mostly feeling knocked out most of the time). My dad takes it for diabetic neuropathy at night and for restless leg syndrome and... (7 replies)
