Amitriptyline (Elavil)

Amitriptyline is a prescription medicine that is predominantly used to treat the symptoms of depression and works on the central nervous system which increases the levels of specific chemicals in the brain.

This medicine is known as a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) which is an older type of antidepressant, and is not traditionally recommended as the first port of call to treat depression because of the dangers if an overdose occurs, and can also cause more unpleasant side effects in comparison to traditional antidepressants Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) and Serotonin and Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs).

What is Amitriptyline Prescribed For?

Amitriptyline is predominately used to treat the symptoms of depression and works by increasing the amount of the essential substances in the brain that is vital to maintaining a mental balance.

Amitriptyline is also used in a number of other ailments, including the prevention of migraine headaches, postherpetic neuralgia (the pains or aches that could occur for a number of months or years after a shingles infection), and can also be used in the treatment of eating disorders as it reduces the desire to binge eat.

How Does Amitriptyline Work?

Amitriptyline is thought to work by increasing the levels of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that carries messages between nerve cells in the brain and the body, which plays a key role in a number of body functions such as mood, digestion, bone health, and sleep.

It can also change the way your nerves receive pain signals, which can alleviate symptoms if being taken for conditions like migraines or postherpetic neuralgia.

It’s recommended not to use amitriptyline if you have either had a heart attack recently or have used an MAO inhibitor antidepressant in the last 14 days or have had an SSRI antidepressant in the last 5 weeks. It’s also important to speak to your doctor if you’ve had any of the following: 

  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetes
  • Mental illness, psychosis, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia

There are a number of potential side effects of amitriptyline, including the following:
