Adepress review

Adepress is an effective and popular medicament that battles depression. In medical terms it is called a tricyclic antidepressant medicament. By inhibiting the serotonin and the noradrenaline reuptake in a persons body, Adepress actually drives up the levels of those natural body chemicals so that the levels of depression decrease. It is usually sold under the labels Elavil, Tryptanol, Endep, Elatrol, Tryptizol, Trepiline, and Laroxyl. It also has sedative effects, so it can be used to calm down people with mood condition and violent depression. Adepress is typically used by doctors to treat clinical depression and depression in the elderly, however in some countries it is used to treat chronic migraines, chronic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and insomnia. A medical study done in 2003 compared Adepress with a control group of anti depressants, and almost 90% of the subjects had a more favorable response with Adepress.

The side effects that people may experience while on this medicament are dry mouth, drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, insomnia and weight gain. Because of the drowsiness and dizziness that people experience while taking this medicament, most patients are encouraged not to drive or operate heavy machinery while on Adepress. The side effects previously mentioned are the common side effects of the medicament, but in some rare cases people may experience mania, hypotension, psychosis, and hepatic toxicity. If you experience any of these rare symptoms you should inform your doctor immediately.

People who have a history of seizures, liver diseases, blood diseases, hyperthyroidism, constipation and glaucoma should inform their doctor of their condition before taking Adepress. Any of these diseases may hinder the medicament. Patients with heart disease should be particularly careful because this medicament can cause abnormal rhythms in the heart. Patients with bipolar disorder might experience hypermaniac attacks if given Adepress, doctors might want to adjust the dose or prescribe a different medicament. The use of Adepress hasn't been cleared for pregnant women, and it also is passed through breast milk so mothers should not nurse their children while they are on the medicament.

Patients should also tell their doctor about any medicament that they are taking before they try Adepress. Medications like cisapride, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, Marplan, Nardil, Eldepryl, Emsam, Zelapar and Parnate have negative effects when combined with Adepress. Any medicament you are on might react badly with Adepress, even simple medicaments like sleeping pills, antihistamines, diet pills, herbal vitamins, or anything like that might react badly with Adepress and be a cause for trouble. Giving your doctor a complete medical and medicament history is a must.

Adepress should only be taken as prescribed by your doctor. The tablets are small, white and odorless. They come in 10, 25, 50 and 70 mg tablets. The dosage for adults and the elderly is typically 25 to 150 mg daily depending on the severity of the condition being treated. It is very important to take the dosage recommended by your doctor, as too much might affect your mental health adversely and not positively.
