How Amitop M Tablet works

Amitop M 5mg/1500mcg Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Amitriptyline and methylcobalamin. Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant which increases the levels of chemical messengers (serotonin and noradrenaline) that stop the movement of pain signals in the brain.

Together, they relieve neuropathic pain (pain from damaged nerves).
