Amitriptylinoxide is a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) indicated for the treatment of depression. Amitriptylinoxide is both an analogue and a pro-drug of amitriptyline and has similar effects, as well as equivalent efficacy as amitriptyline in the management of neurotic depression. The mechanism of action of amitriptyline in man is not known. Amitriptyline inhibits the membrane pump mechanism responsible for the re-uptake of transmitter amines, such as norepinephrine and serotonin, thereby increasing their concentration at the synaptic clefts of the brain. Amitriptyline has pronounced anticholinergic properties and produces EKG changes and quinidine-like effects on the heart. It also lowers the convulsive threshold and causes alterations in EEG and sleep patterns.
