a new approach in treatment

'TRYPTIZOL' Amitryptyline pamoate SYRUP
It is generally accepted that nocturnal enuresis is commonly a manifestation of an emotional problem.*
Where an organic cause has been excluded, 'Tryptizol', well known as an effective and well-tolerated antidepressant,
has been found to reduce the incidence of bed-wetting in a useful proportion of affected children.
*"...it seems quite clearly established by the work carried out in the modern child guidance clinics that bed-wetting is a
frequent sign of an unstable child reacting badly to environment and life as he or she finds it." The British Encyclopaedia
of Medical Practice,
2nd Ed., Butterworth & Co., London, 1951, vol 5, p222.
Each 5 ml (teaspoonful) contains 10 mg amitriptyline (as the pamoate). Detailed information is available to physicians on request.
