Amitop 25 MG Description

Amitop Tablet is used for the treatment of major depressive disorder, various psychological/neurological conditions and neuropathic (nerve) pain. It consists of amitriptyline as its main ingredient.

It is an antidepressant medication. The mode of action of Amitop tablets is to block certain chemical substances, which results in improving mood, blocking pain, etc. Endogenous depression and other mood disorders cause persistent sadness, anger, loss of interest, etc. Neuropathic pain is a chronic condition caused by some nerve disease in most cases. It can also be because of an injury or an infection. Managing eating disorders, post-herpetic neuralgia (the burning, stabbing pains, or aches that may last for months or years after a herpes infection), and preventing migraine headaches are some other uses of Amitop Tablet. The dosage of Amitop Tablet must be carefully monitored. Try to take it exactly as directed by the doctor. Do not stop using it suddenly or skip doses, as it can cause withdrawal symptoms like irritability, sleep problems, fatigue, etc. Amitop Tablet should be tapered slowly to avoid these effects.
