Relidep Plus H 12.5mg Tablets Description
Relidep Plus Tab is a prescription medicine that is mainly used for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe depression. Depression is a type of mood disorder. It is also known as clinical d
epression, characterised by a feeling of sadness, mood swings, loss of interest, feelings of hopelessness and loneliness, etc. Relidep Plus Tab is a combination medicine that contains Amitriptyline and Chlordiazepoxide as their active ingredient. Amitriptyline is an antidepressant that works by increasing the levels of chemical messengers in the brain. This helps in regulating mood and also treats depression. Chlordiazepoxide produces sedating and calming effects in users by acting on the brain to increase the inhibitory effects of a neurotransmitter called GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). Relidep Plus Tab should be taken in dosage and duration as advised by your doctor. There are also many side effects associated with this medicine, so it is advised to take it after the doctor’s consultation, and dosage must be carefully monitored. Do not stop taking this medicine suddenly without consulting your doctor, as it can cause clinical worsening of your condition or may lead to withdrawal symptoms.
