About AMIXIDE 10MG TABLET

AMIXIDE 10MG TABLET is a combination medicine used to treat moderate to severe depression associated with moderate to severe anxiety. Depression is a mood disorder characterised by sadness, unhappiness, anger, hopelessness or loss. Anxiety is a mental health disorder characterised by feelings of anxiety, worry or fear that are strong enough to interfere with one’s daily activities. Anxiety and depression can occur at the same time.

AMIXIDE 10MG TABLET is a combination of two drugs: Amitriptyline (tricyclic anti-depressant) and Chlordiazepoxide (benzodiazepine anxiolytic). Amitriptyline works by affecting certain chemical messengers in the brain that communicate between brain cells, thereby regulating mood and treating depression. Chlordiazepoxide works by increasing the action of a chemical messenger called GABA. This helps in suppressing the excessive and abnormal activity of the nerve cells in the brain. AMIXIDE 10MG TABLET has a calming effect on various functions of the brain. Thereby, helps in treating anxiety.

Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

AMIXIDE 10MG TABLET should not be taken for longer durations as it may cause physical dependence. Consult your doctor immediately if you have suicidal thoughts such as killing or harming yourself. Do not take AMIXIDE 10MG TABLET if you are pregnant as it may cause birth defects. Consult your doctor before taking AMIXIDE 10MG TABLET if you are breastfeeding.
