Hi Doc,

I would just like to know if Teriline 25mg is a painkiller or a tranqulizer? I have been given this to cure my headaches.....

Dear Susie
I think you mean Trepiline 25 mg - it is an antidepressant that helps for chronic headache by relaxing you, breaking the tension in the muscles and increasing your pain threshold.
It is not a painkiller like panado or a tranquilizer in the real sense of the word ( like Valium for instance). It is less addictive than tranquilizers.
