Trimipramine should be stored at room temperature away from moisture and heat. The capsules should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your trimipramine as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember. However, if you usually take your dose at night, you may not want to make up the missed dose, due to the risk of drowsiness if trimipramine is taken during the day. Also, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
Trimipramine capsules are available in the following strengths:
Trimipramine 25 mg
