Bioaccumulation: Log Kow = 4.92 (unknown method).
Toxicity: No data.
Risk of environmental impact of amitriptyline cannot be excluded, since no ecotoxicity data are available.
Amitriptyline has been found in treated wastewater (up to 24 ng/L), surface water (up to 9.1 ng/L) and sludge (up to 170 microg/kg dry weight) at national measurements.
