Hi there,
am I right in thinking Elavil is a brand of amitriptyline? If so this does sound like quite an extreme reaction, based on my and a friends experiences of it and the fact that you're starting on 10mg.

Are you taking it at night?
Are you taking any other medication/alcohol with it?

Assuming that you're not, I would probably hold off tonight's dose and speak to a GP in the morning just to check you should continue. Stuff like this affects people differently. Take care!

Rant away - his bedside manner sounds like it leaves a lot to be desired? Is there a different GP you can see? Hope the side effects do calm down v quickly. take care!
