The blood test is used to determine levels of the TCA in the blood. Usually the purpose is to see if 'therapeutic levels' have been reached. Do you have side effects like orthostatic hypotension (dizziness when you stand up)? If the drug is lowering your blood pressure it will likely cause frequent dizziness and faintness.
