    What dose Elavil do you take that you experience weight gain? I take between 10-25 a night and the weight gain is not bad...it actually helps with my mood....

    I take 25 mg. a night and I've been on it about 3 years now. During that time I've gained almost 20 pounds.

    Since I've been on it I have the worst chocolate cravings, which I never had before!

    I don't notice any improvement in mood, but I have found it enormously helpful in my sleep (I only wake up once or twice a night now, and usually get back to sleep right away -- instead of the waking every 45 min. and being awake for half an hour each time all night long) So overall it's worth it for me to continue; I just need to develop some willpower over the chocolate!

    Best wishes,
