Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Imipramine is a potentially dangerous medication.
A dosage above 400 mg in a day is considered life threatening.
Imipramine can cause heart arrhythmias, change in electrolytes, kidney and liver failure.
You cannot manage these issues at home.
Please call 911 and go to the ER for close monitoring for next 24 hours.
The drug may take about 48 to 72 hours to come down to the safe level.
Please do not neglect this.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
