Depramil contains the active ingredient Citalopram, which is an SSRI class antidepressant.

And yes, it can cause some weight gain, this class of medications is well known for doing that. Other side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness and dry mouth.

Hi, I'm Shaz, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder three months ago after years of incorrect diagnosis, Bi-polar, minor epilepsy, to name a few. It seems to be an accurate diagnosis and I have been on Depramil 20 for the past 3 months. Initially it seemed to agree with me and calmed me down tremendously, however for the past few weeks I am getting stomach cramps and nausea and frequently need to go to the toilet, however, I always feel like I have not emptied my bowels. Is this a side effect, should I need to have it checked out? I am 59 years old. Thanks.

Is there a risk of overdosing on Depramil, and how many tablets are too many?

I hope that your intent behind asking such a question is for safety reasons. If not, please reach out to someone for help.

Citalopram overdoses often have only mild to moderate symptoms, particularly with ingestions under 600 mg in adults. However, with higher doses, severe manifestations have been described, including QTc prolongation, TdP, and seizures. Serotonin syndrome has also been described in SSRI overdose, and our patient exhibited signs consistent with SS, including increased muscle tone and autonomic dysregulation. Our patient’s serum concentration suggests a massive overdose, with major clinical effects, possible SS, and death.
