About this test

Dothiepin is referred to as an tricyclic antidepressant. Dothiepin is used to treat depression.

Depression occurs when the amount of nonadrenaline and serotin released by the brain is decreased.

Dothiepin works by helping to block the return of these chemicals to the brain, allowing an individual to continue to feel up-lifted, instead of depressed.

In some instances, Dothiepin is used as a painkiller to treat severe nerve pain.
