Applications of the active ingredient trimipramine

Trimipramine is an active ingredient used in depression with anxiety disorders, sleep disorders or internal anxiety (nervousness). In addition, trimipramine is also suitable for the treatment of chronic pain.

As part of a withdrawal program for opioid addicts (as in the case of morphine or heroin), trimipramine is used for so-called “warm withdrawal.”

For the following application areas of Trimipramine , in-depth information is available:

  • depression
  • anxiety disorders
  • sleep
  • nervous

Mode of action of trimipramine

Trimipramine belongs to the group of tri- and tetracyclic antidepressants. The tricyclic drug inhibits the action of many messengers in the brain by blocking their binding sites (receptors). These are so-called H 1 receptors (receptors of the histamine), muscarinic receptors, alfa 1 adrenergic receptors and receptors for serotonin.

The blockade of H 1 and serotonin receptors results in a calming, sleep-inducing, anxiolytic and mood-enhancing effect. In this way, the most common symptoms of depression can be combated. The blockade of the muscarinic and alfa 1 adrenergic receptors is mainly responsible for the adverse effects such as decreased salivation, gastrointestinal discomfort or lower blood pressure. While these side effects occur at the beginning of treatment, the desired antidepressant effect usually sets in after about two to four weeks.

    Surmontil for Depression; Sleep disorders

    My doctor prescribed Surmontil for me. After several months with sleep disturbances (not falling asleep, waking up several times at night, waking up too early), I was extremely exhausted and pretty nervous at the end. Trials with Temesta did not help and I also had a head the next day. With Surmontil (4-5 drops in the evening) I usually sleep through and after about three weeks now I feel better again, (stronger), more active. My mood brightens up. I feel fit again. In addition, I take a Solevita forte tablet in the morning. This also seems to help. Maybe my mood will improve only because I can sleep for several hours at a time. I have no side effects.

    Side effects: No side effects

My mood swings were this year more and more extreme and sleep well I could almost no longer agr. from janur I take surmontil again. and fluoxetine I now also take 450 mg Depakine chrono. against impulsivity and mood swings as well as depression. I had very good experiences with all three eig. or still. would recommend surmontil and depakine immediately. the combination is very pleasant. However, I am now tired during the day and in the evening awake at the moment. I am a bit tired in the morning. Side effect I almost did not have except between a little headache. but otherwise not really … have it well tolerated.

    Surmontil for Sleep disorders

    Hello! I’ll try again to write down my experiences here: I was prescribed Surmontil (trimipramine) two years ago, because it is said to have a good effect in migraine patients in a study. I had constant headaches for four weeks, which worried me. I usually know headaches well, because I am weather-sensitive and always get a headache when I drink alcohol, which is why I almost consume no alcohol. In addition, I did not find the jump to sleep at night and until midnight, sometimes 1-clock rumgedaddelt. Then I also had a phase when I woke up repeatedly at 4 o’clock in the morning, then was awake until 6 o’clock and then fell into a deep sleep, which ended abruptly at 6:15 of my alarm clock. The result was: I was totally bruised and did not get into the hall all day long: something like this can aggravate a migraine / headache disposition and lead to headaches. So I should start with 5 to 10 drops, so I decided on the 10 drops, so that it brings something (I was told that patients with depression take up to 70 drops). After 10 drops I almost fell asleep from the chair, that was way too much. So I tried it out and for me 3 drops are ideal. I have to take that pretty early (19-20 clock). Then I get very sleepy between 9-10 pm and go to bed. The best part is that I slept through great and if I wake up between 6-7 clock then I could pull out trees, I’m so fit. I have tested all the other recommended migraine medications, and they were too strong (triptan preparation) or too annoying (Vit B something). I only rarely take Surmontil, but when I have a phase in which I go to bed badly or sleep badly I take my 3 drops. That’s awesome and when dosing almost homeopathic I mean. But it is important that you take it early: as a means to sleep interruption at night to treat it is not suitable, because then you will not wake up. It takes quite a few hours to break down and then wake up again. I have no side effects when dosing and it is my tip for people who often fall asleep bad or can not fall asleep.

    Side effects: Headache

    Surmontil for Depression

    Medicament: Surmontil I take this medication to treat my depression. Unfortunately, it has not worked until today and I have to deal with annoying side effects. Will definitely appeal to my doctor at the next appointment. Take this medicine now 2 months. I’ve lost a lot of weight and I often have a headache and I’m so tired. Feel even more tired than before. Can sleep very badly and have breathing problems. Heart racing unfortunately also comes to it. Can not recommend this medicine. Of course, this is just my own experience and it is quite possible that it will work for other people.

    Side effects: Headache; Fatigue

    Take Trimipramine (Surmontil) for 10 years against panic attacks. Had begun with 25mg and was over the years to 150 mg wenns I went worse. Strong sedative especially at the beginning. Having had sleep problems all my life, Surmontil was able to fall asleep for the first time without lying in bed for hours. Do not wake up too often at night. For in the morning like a stone in bed, getting up trouble. Before I took Surmontil, I was really quick out of bed. View of the vastness with Surmontil badly deteriorated, my eyes were good before. Weight gain of about 8 kg, since I’m a rather slim, that’s no problem. Against panic attacks has helped well, even against chronic back, joint pain. But you are already muted the whole day. I would classify the andtidepressive effect as very low. Had strong mood swings, I read that trimipramine can trigger that synonymous and I am meanwhile no longer sure whether perhaps comes from the Medikamnet. Sexual disorders are nowhere near as strong as with SSRI or venlafaxine (Trevilor). Libido decreased, but no anorgasmia or impotence at 50 mg. in higher dosages yes. Generally for sleeping a very good drug, even against panic.

    Side effects: Fatigue; Increase in weight

    The side effects such as dry mouth or blurred vision have subsided after a few days. Slight gain in weight, but I accept that, as I am able to sleep reasonably thanks to Surmontil.

    Side effects: Increase in weight
