8 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

Triavil is an old medicine that is not often used anymore.
It's a combination of Amitriptyline and perphenazine. The latter is a neuroleptic (antipsychotic) medication that mainly acts by blocking Dopamine receptors in the brain.

In brief: Agree wi Dr Reidbord

Triavil is no longer manufactured in the US.
It contained amitriptyline and perphenazine . The perphenazine bound to dopamine D1 & D2 receptors and inhibited their activity. REF: https://www.drugbank.ca/drugs/DB00850
