Maprotiline (Ludiomil)

In many cases, people with depression also experience anxiety. The antidepressant maprotiline hydrochloride (Ludiomil®) is approved to treat both depression and anxiety associated with depression. Healthcare providers will sometimes prescribe it for other conditions, such as chronic pain or bedwetting; however, these are not approved uses for the medication.
 
Potential side effects of maprotiline include dry mouth, constipation, dizziness, and nervousness. Keep in mind that it usually takes a few weeks before significant changes in mood occur. It is important to give maprotiline a chance to work before becoming discouraged.
