Pamelor Product Description
Pamelor is a tricyclic antidepressant used to treat major depressive disorder. Also, this antidepressant can be administered for a long-term supportive treatment of recurrent depression. Clinical trials have demonstrated that the antidepressant inhibits the catecholamines activity and is characterized by a combination of stimulant and depressant properties.
A good safety and tolerability profile allows to use tricyclic antidepressant Pamelor for the treatment of major depression not only in adults and elderly patients, but also in adolescents aged 12 years and over.
The antidepressant therapy is recommended to be started with a low dose of Pamelor. A usual adult dose Pamelor makes from 75 to 100 mg per day, separated by 3 to 4 intakes. The maximum adult dose of the antidepressant is 150mg per day. For the treatment of depressive disorders in adolescents and elderly patients, the recommended dose of Pamelor is 30 to 50 mg per day.
If you’ve missed one dose of Pamelor, do not worry, and take the antidepressant as soon as you remember. Do not take the missed dose of Pamelor, if it is time for the next dose of the tricyclic antidepressant. Do not take additional antidepressants or double doses of Pamelor to make up the missed dose.
Pamelor is characterized by the property to prevent nocturnal diuresis in childhood. But the drug is not approved for the treatment of urological problems in children, so it can be used for prophylaxis of nocturnal enuresis only as "off-label".
Pamelor tablets should be stored at temperature between 20° and 25°C in a dry warm place, away from children, in their original package.
