Description
Curator's Comment:: description was created based on several sources, including http://www.rxlist.com/elavil-drug.htm https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23235671; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11157426; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16871467; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2578912; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=15943846

Amitriptyline is a derivative of dibenzocycloheptadiene and a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) and is mainly used to treat symptoms of depression. It works on the central nervous system (CNS) by inhibiting the membrane pump mechanism responsible for uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin in adrenergic and serotonergic neurons. Amitriptyline has been frequently used as an active comparator in clinical trials on newer antidepressants. It is rarely used as a first-line antidepressant nowadays due to its high degree of toxicity in overdose and generally poorer tolerability than the newer antidepressants.
