Switching antidepressant (tricyclic antidepressants (TCA) to agomelatine)

Cross-taper

  • cross-tapering can usually be undertaken cautiously over 2 to 4 weeks, the speed is determined by individual tolerability

  • there is limited experience with this switch so extra caution is required. Although interactions are not expected, agomelatine is not expected to mitigate discontinuation reactions from stopping TCAs.
