My doctor prescribed me Elavil to see how it will work for my ibs-d along with my anxiety. He said it is an older medication but he has seen good results with it in other patients. I am taking the generic form and will probably start it tonight or tomorrow night to see how it affects me before I take it during the day if at all possible. I was just wanting to know of anyones experience with Elavil good or bad. I am hoping it will work on both issues for me.
