Different drugs affect different chemicals in the brain. For example,
amitriptyline affects serotonin and norepinephrine
perphenazine affects dopamine
lexapro and paxil only effect serotonin.
Therefore, a doctor may use amitriptyline and perphenazine to correct an imbalance in those chemicals mentioned which would not be corrected by Lexapro or Paxil alone.
Hope this makes sense,
- Lexapro Drug Information
- Paxil Drug Information
- Amitriptyline / Perphenazine Drug Information
- Perphenazine Drug Information
