Can anyone suggest an alternative to Elavil. Was on it for three years (100mg and still woke up throught it) and then was upped to 150mg. After couple of months I started to hallucinate in the night seeing people in my bedroom!! which scared the hell out of me, and didn't do an awful lot for my partner when I woke him up with my screaming!!! Anyway, been off them for some months and no more hallucinations. However, have gone drastically downhill since. Am in constant pain, exhausted because don't sleep long enough or deep enough anymore, and have now lost my job because of it all. Have been put on Cipramil (upped to 20 mg last week) so far hasn't made a blind bit of difference. Any help would be great. Jacqui PS Used to have 5HTP and melatonin with the Elavil, but can't have the 5HTP with the Cipramil and the melatonin suddenly broke me out in screaming skin!!! Should have sunk a battleship but I still woke up several times a night.
