How effective are Tryptanol tablets 25 mg from Japan for depression (antidepressant)?
The active ingredient of Tryptanol tablets is amitriptyline hydrochloride, a tricyclic antidepressant. It works by inhibiting noradrenaline and serotonin transporter protein in the brain. Amitriptyline also can be spelled sometimes as amitryptyline, amytriptyline, amitryptiline, amitriptiline. Multiple studies show that Tryptanol tablets are more effective than other antidepressants in treatment of major depressive disorder (A. Cipriani, T. Furukawa et al. Comparative efficacy and acceptability of 21 antidepressant drugs for the acute treatment of adults with major depressive disorder: a systematic review and network meta-analysis. Lancet, 2018, April. 391(10128): 1357–1366). Amitriptyline’s main metabolite is nortriptyline, which also works as a noradrenaline transporter protein inhibitor. This subsequently enhances the antidepressant effects of amitriptyline.
