Amitriptyline is an antidepressant tricyclic class of compounds derived from dibenzocycloheptadiene. The mechanism of antidepressant action is associated with an increased concentration of noradrenaline (noreprinephrine) in the synapses and/or in the central nervous system due to reverse neuronal capture of these mediators. After long-term use, Amitriptyline produces a reduction in brain beta-adrenergic and serotonin receptors function, normalizes adrenergic and serotonergic transmission, restores the balance of these systems, impaired in depressive states. This medication helps to reduce anxiety, agitation and depressive symptoms in patients with anxiety-depressive disorders. Amitriptyline has also an analgetic effect associated, as it believed, with changes in the concentration of monoamines in the central nervous system, especially serotonin, and the influence on the endogenous opioid system.
