Can't seem to sleep on Elavil?

I'm taking Elavil at night like I'm prescribed, but I can never seem to fall asleep. When it's about after mid-night, I'll just take a Benadryl to force myself to sleep and it works, but I remain very sleepy after waking up and throughout the day.. Fortunately I'm a jobless person with too much time on my hands, so it's no big deal to have some sleepy days, but it actually starts to feel depressing when I'm too sleepy to do anything, which pretty much defeats the purpose of taking an anti-depressant.

How is elavil not letting me sleep, I thought it was supposed to help you sleep?

I tried taking Elavil early in the afternoon and then suddenly it decides to make me feel sleepy... this is ridiculous
