Levate How to Take

Levate (Amitriptyline) belongs to a family of medications known as tricyclic antidepressants. It is used to treat Depression. It works in the central nervous system (CNS) to elevate the mood of people with depression. It is believed to work by keeping the balance of natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the body, namely serotonin and norepinephrine. It may start to work within 3 to 4 days, but it may take up to 30 days to see the full effects.

Levate (Amitriptyline) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Levate (Amitriptyline) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Levate (Amitriptyline) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Levate (Amitriptyline) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Levate (Amitriptyline), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Levate (Amitriptyline) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Levate (Amitriptyline) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Levate (Amitriptyline) if their doctor has not prescribed it.
