Advice & Tips: This drug actually serves a dual purpose. It is a tricyclic anti-depressant that has a side effect of dry mouth helping to treat excess saliva. It was originally prescribed for its drying effect. I stopped taking this because other medications I'm currently taking are causing the same dryness. This is an effective low cost dual purpose medication. I would recommend this medication for any patient in need of an anti depressant or management of excess saliva.
Cost: < $25 monthly
