      How it works

      Dosulepin is a tricyclic antidepressant that acts by increasing transmitter levels at central synapses, so producing a clinical antidepressant effect. In common with other tricyclics, Dosulepin inhibits the reuptake of noradrenaline and 5-hydroxytryptamine, with a significantly greater action on the reuptake of noradrenaline.
