Elavil

Elavil

Is Elavil one of those drugs that you have to "wean" off?
Can you skip a dose?

my issue is, I don't / won't be on a drug that I'm required to take everyday or risk dangerous side effects or worse. I would like to find something I could take when needed not daily. I'm stubborn that way and my doctor keep prescribing drugs I don't want to be on! I don't need to be drugged up everyday. I won't be and I guess I'll suffer instead. Trading pain for dependence on dangerous meds isn't an option
