Non sedating tricyclics
Tricyclic antidepressants have been around for a long time, with the first drugs in this class of antidepressants having been developed in the 1950's.
Although newer medications (often with fewer side effects and a lower risk of overdose) are now available, tricyclic antidepressants still have a place in the treatment of bipolar disorder, depression, as well as for other conditions such as chronic pain.
These chemicals are released from the end of one nerve cell, into a space between the cells (the synapse), and then taken up into the next nerve cell as a method of transmitting information.
Tricyclic antidepressants work by increasing the level of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine (by preventing your body from breaking down these chemicals.) Since they increase levels of both of these neurotransmitters, they are considered "dual action" antidepressants.
I am not depressed but hyperfocus when I'm bored or when my stims are tapering down regarding therapeutic benefits.
This is likely not surprising to those who have lived with depression, as they've realized that depression symptoms may occur even when everything in life seems to be going well.
I'm so fed up with my anxiety , its not panic but its more like time killing rumination that is generated from boredom.
Your doctor may have recommended a tricyclic antidepressant medication to treat your depression, bipolar disorder, or for another condition such as pain. What drugs are considered tricyclic antidepressants, and what are some common side effects of which you should be aware?
Taking these two types of drugs together or within two weeks of each other may cause sudden high body temperature, extremely high blood pressure, severe convulsions, and death.
Your doctor may prescribe them together, but this situation should be under the doctor's close supervision.
