Re: What is a Tricyclic Antidepressant?

Tricyclics are among the "older" antidepressants and aren't prescribed much any more. Lexapro is an SSRI and Risperdal is an atypical antipsychotic.

Why would they screen for tricyclics? As far as I know, they have no abuse issues and aren't used much now because (although often very effective for depression), many have annoying side effects and some can cause heart problems etc.

Of course, the newer meds have their own issues, but in any case, whose business is it if you use antidepressants etc. legitimately? Surely that wouldn't exclude you from a job (although in today's America, anything is possible).
