The 50 mg. arrived. Now the 25 mg. is on backorder. I was wondering if worse comes to worst can I substitute the 25 mg. with a generic trimipramine? Also what medications are close in chemistry to Surmontil? Also, if I were to receive another type of antidepressant, is it difficult changing from one medication to some other type of antidepressant similar in makeup chemistry as the one I can no longer obtain?

I would first talk to my doctor as I can find back into 2008 they have had problems filling requests for this drug. I do not know your situation but I would surely talk it over with your doctor about changing, from a medication that works for you into the unknown.
Gosh, I have many times moved from drug to drug sometimes it works and sometimes it did not.
I send you my hopes and prayers.

Hello juliacard. There is no generic available to Surmontil. You might ask your doctor about the following Anti-depressants, also being from the tricyclic family of drugs. Tofranil (Imipramine) or Endrep(Amitriptyline) They both work much the same as Sumontil. Best of wishes to you, pledge
