Could anyone tell me which, if any, of the sedating TCAs are safe to use in elderly patients (76 years old)? Which are the least cardio-toxic?
My mother is currently taking Effexor and Ativan but she needs something else. The only other possibilities I can think of are Seroquel and Remeron. I'm a little afraid of suggesting an AP. She has a terrible time with acid reflux disease so I'm also a bit afraid of telling her to ask her doctor about Remeron.
