IS AMITRIPTYLINE IN THE BENZO FAMILY

Customer Question

IS AMITRIPTYLINE IN THE BENZO FAMILY
Submitted: 6 years ago.
Category: Mental Health
Expert:  Dr. Michael replied 6 years ago.
No, it is considered to be a trycyclic antidepressant. Benzos are considered to be in the old family of minor tranquilizers, which can be addicting if taken for several months regularly. Not so with trycyclics. Also, they have different side effect profiles.
