Composition and release form

1 tablet contains amitriptyline (as hydrochloride) 10 or 25 mg; in blistere 10 pcs., in a cardboard bundle 5 blisters.

Pharmachologic effect

Mode of action - antidepressant, antidisuric, sedative.

Inhibits the reverse capture of catecholamines (noradrenaline, dopamine, serotonin) in the central nervous system, blocks muscarinic cholinergic receptors in the central nervous system and periphery, and has other anti-mediator properties (including H1-antihistamine).


When administered, its bioavailability is 33-62%, Cmax in the blood plasma is reached after 4-8 hours. It is metabolized in the liver with the formation of the active metabolite nortriptyline. The therapeutic concentrations in the blood for amitriptyline and nortriptyline are 120-240 ng / ml. Excretion, mainly, renal. Complete excretion takes place within 7 days. T1 / 2 amitriptyline 10-28 h, nortriptyline 16-80 h. Amitriptyline passes through the placental barrier, penetrates into breast milk, creating concentrations similar to plasma.

Indications of Amitriptyline-Grindex

Depression (especially effective in anxiety-depressive states), mixed emotional disorders and behavioral disorders, phobic disorders, children's enuresis (except for children with hypotonic urinary bladder), psychogenic anorexia, bulimic neurosis, severe neurogenic pain, migraine prevention.

Side effects

From the nervous system and sensory organs: disruption of accommodation, increased intraocular pressure, drowsiness.

Neuroleptics, sedatives and hypnotics, anticonvulsant drugs, central and narcotic analgesics, means for anesthesia, alcohol potentiate the depressing effect on the central nervous system. Strengthens the hypertensive effect of catecholamines, blocks the antihypertensive effect of guanethidine and drugs with a similar mechanism of action. Cimetidine increases the concentration of amitriptyline in plasma.

The combination with neuroleptics and / or anticholinergic drugs can cause a febrile temperature reaction, paralytic intestinal obstruction.

Dosing and Administration

Inside, during or after a meal. The initial daily dose is 50-75 mg (25 mg in 2-3 doses), if necessary, gradually increase the dose (by 25-50 mg) to the optimal dose - 150-200 mg / day (most of the daily dose taken before bedtime).

For severe depressions resistant to therapy: 300 mg or more, up to the maximum tolerated dose. (The maximum dose for outpatients is 150 mg / day). After achieving a persistent antidepressant effect after 2-4 weeks, the dose is gradually reduced (in case of signs of depression, it is necessary to return to the previous dose).

For mild disorders, in outpatient practice: elderly patients - 25-50 mg, a maximum of 100 mg in divided doses or once before bedtime.

Enuresis: children over 6 years of age - 12.5-25 mg at bedtime (but not more than 2.5 mg / kg).

For the prevention of migraine, with chronic pain of a neurogenic nature (including long-term headaches): from 12.5-25 mg to 100 mg / day.

Treatment: discontinuation of therapy, gastric lavage, infusion of fluid, IM or IV injection of physostigmine 1-3 mg every 0.5-2 hours (for children, physostigmine is started at a dose of 0.5 mg, then the dose is repeated with a 5-minute interval for determining the minimum effective dose, but not more than 2 mg). Physostigmine should be used only with coma, respiratory depression and other serious disorders; symptomatic therapy, maintenance of blood pressure and water-electrolyte balance. Monitoring of cardiovascular activity (ECG) for 5 days is shown, since relapse can occur after 48 hours and later.

Precautionary measures

Simultaneous reception with MAO inhibitors can lead to death. A break in treatment between taking MAO inhibitors and amitriptyline (and other tricyclic antidepressants) should be at least 14 days.

Amitriptyline at a dose above 150 mg / day reduces the threshold of convulsive activity, so the risk of convulsive seizures in patients with those in the history increases.

For the period of treatment it is forbidden to drive vehicles, service mechanisms and other types of work that require increased attention.

Treatment of elderly patients should be carefully monitored by applying minimal doses of the drug, increasing them gradually.

A transition from the depressive phase of manic-depressive psychosis to a manic stage is possible.

If the patient's condition does not improve within 3-4 weeks, further therapy is not practical.
