Adverse Effects of Tricyclic Drugs

Did you know that…..

Tricyclic Drugs (drugs again depression) have some disagreeable anticholinergic effects ?

For example on the eyes, causing difficulty in focusing.

Did you know that…..

Imipramine, one Tricyclic drug, may cause some difficulty in micturition ?.

And Amitriptyline, an other Tricyclic, tends to make some patients feel drowsy and causes dryness of the mouths ?.

Nevertheless some of these side-effects usually recede with continued use and become quite easily tolerated.
