What is Amitriptyline?
Amitriptyline (brand names: Elavil®, Levate®) is a tricyclic antidepressant used to treat behavior disorders in small animals, such as generalized and separation anxiety in dogs, and excessive grooming, urine spraying, lower urinary tract disease, and anxiety in cats. It has also been used for nerve pain and itchiness in small animals, and for lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) in cats. In birds, amitriptyline has been used for behavior problems such as feather picking.
Its use in cats and dogs to treat behavior and other conditions is ‘off label’ or ‘extra-label’. Many drugs are commonly prescribed for off label use in veterinary medicine. In these instances, follow your veterinarian’s directions and cautions very carefully as their direction may be significantly different from those on the label.
