Customer Question

I read that there is a strong interaction between the medication spasmex and tricyclic antidepressants. I was prescribed a tricyclic antidepressant to relief symptoms of depression and stopped the medication Spasmex. Did I do the right decision? My psychiatrist is not available now for questioning and I don't know if I did the right decision. I need the antidepressant.

yes, there can be interactions between Spasmex (or trospium) and tricyclics.

the combination can increase risks for hyperpyrexia and can increase anticholinergic adverse effects.

you made the right decision.

take the antidepressant

and talk to your doctor at your next appointment about this possible interaction.

let me know if you have other questions.
