Introduction

Amitril 25mg Tablet is used in the treatment of depression. Different doses of this medicine help in treating and preventing different problems such as chronic nerve-related (neuropathic) pain, migraine, tension-type headache and nighttime bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) by older children (6 years and above).

Amitril 25mg Tablet is known as a tricyclic antidepressant. It is normally taken before bedtime because it can make you feel sleepy. It can be taken with or without food. The dose and how often you need to take it will be decided by your doctor so that you get the right amount to control your symptoms. It may be increased gradually. This medicine may not work straight away and it could be several weeks before you get the full effects.

How long you need to use it will depend on what you are taking it for, but it is important to continue taking this medication even if you feel well. Do not suddenly stop taking it without consulting your doctor as it may make your condition worse. Your dose may be modified or gradually decreased before stopping the medication.

The most common side effects of this medicine include nausea, constipation, sweating, dry mouth, sleepiness, tremor, dizziness, headache, speech disorder, accommodation disorder, palpitations, increased heart rate, orthostatic hypotension, and nasal congestion. It may also make you aggressive or confused and can lead to weight gain in some people. This medicine is not addictive, but you can experience additional side effects (withdrawal symptoms) if you stop taking it suddenly. Most of the common side effects tend to be mild. Your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing side effects if they bother you or do not go away. Serious side effects associated with this medicine are rare.
