Trepiline 25/50mg


My mom aged 61 has been on the above for about 4 years, lately we have discovered she'  s been skipping her medication (taking one today then one 2 days later and so forth). She is complaining of dizziness and her blood pressure is high. She has been to the Dr, told the doctor what she is taking but not how she is taking it. Could this be the cause of her dizziness,fatigue and high blood.
The dr also found an infection in her urine which she did not know she even had.

Hello Michelle,

Trepiline is now used to prevent migraines and vaginal swelling only in very small doses.
Trepiline is approved most commonly for the treatment of depression.

Trepiline may also be used to treat nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting).
Trepiline is officially approved as a preventive for patients with frequent/chronic migraines.
Trepiline may be prescribed for other conditions such as insomnia, migraine, rebound headache, chronic pain, chronic cough, postherpetic neuralgia (persistent pain following a shingles attack), carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, male chronic pelvic pain syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetic peripheral neuropathy, neurological pain, and painful paresthesias related to multiple sclerosis and at low doses as a preventive (prophylaxis) for patients with frequent migraines.
Trepiline in low doses is also sometimes prescribed to help ease the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Trepiline is thought to help combat symptoms of insomnia primarily, in addition to other selected symptoms of the affliction.

There are many causes of dizziness and high blood pressure so in light of current symptoms and irregularity of compliance with taking medication it is important to work closely with your mother's medical doctor.
