How safe is this drug?

Posted By KimM on April 23, 1999 at 09:43:43
A quick question for a doctor.  How safe is the drug Elavil?  I was on 30mgs. per day to treat possible Fibromyalgia, but I don't think it makes much of a difference.  I am coming off of it slowly over the next week or two and will see how I feel.
I don't like the idea of taking any drugs besides Advil!  If I find that I start feeling worse after I come off the Elavil, I'll start it up again.
But how safe is it?  What can you compare it to?  I have not yet had children and don't want to take any risks.
Thanks for your help.
