What is TCA?
TCA stands for tricyclic antidepressants. This prescription drug is recommended for major depressive disorder (MDD).
Why Test for Tricyclic Antidepressants?
Tricyclic Antidepressants are non-controlled drugs. They are legal prescription medications. As a result, anybody who has a prescription can buy it anywhere.
Although these substances are not addictive, users develop a resistance for it. Later on, they become dependent on it.
This dependence, unfortunately, has led to fatal overdoses in the US.
Therefore, the need for drug testing. It can help self the lives of those who are taking TCAs as a means to cope with depression.

- Third, take the strip out after 15 seconds and lay the strip flat on a clean, dry, non-absorbent surface.

This TCA drug test strip includes internal procedural controls.
