Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant. It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression.

If you mean the exact ingredients that are in the amitriptyline tablet then it may be different from manufacturer to manufacturer. Different manufacturers may use slightly different excipients.

So is it a benzodiazepine?

I have ua's so I need to know if it shows up the same as clonazepam cause that's what I'm prescribed

Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant ... and sorry but I don't know what it would show up in a urinary analysis.

Coreylee, Marvell is right. Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant and that is also what it would show up as on a urine drug screen. Many screens look for tricyclics. It is NOT a benzodiazepine.

You shouldnt be taking drugs that are not prescribed for you, especially if you know that you are being monitored!! Amitriptyline is completely different from clonazepam other than they both make you sleepy.

I'm just doing a dip test not a lab so it wouldn't show as anything besides benzodiazapine right?
