    It seems alot of people are on elavil as it helps heaps, but has anyone experienced heart probs on it? its supposedly bad for that.. does it cause palpitations or ectopic beats / arrhythmias for anyone? I know it increases my ectopics when i take it.

    I took it one time...Was sooo sedated I almost fell walking upstairs to my office...Don't even remember driving to work...Have never taken it since....Super sensitive to meds!!! Yes, I had palpitations, thought I was going to have a heart attack then, fell into a very deep sleep..Scary!

    But meds effect everyone differently, and I have since taken others that have done the same and actually found one that worked...Good luck[This Message was Edited on 07/07/2003]

    It made me feel so tired the next day, that I gave up on it. Most recently I have tried a very low dose of Flexeril (I have to cut the pills into fourths!) two hours before bedtime, but it doesn't seem to do much for me.
