Depran Forte 20mg Strip Of 10 Tablets Description

Depran Forte tablet is a prescription medication commonly used for anxiety and mood disorders. It combines two active medicines: clonazepam (0.5 mg) and escitalopram oxalate (20 mg). Clonazepam is a

tranquilliser, and it belongs to a class of medications called benzodiazepines. Escitalopram is an antidepressant medication, and it belongs to the group of SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) medicines. In mood disorders, the generalised state of the mood gets distorted and interferes with the ability to perform typical day to day activities. It can be family history, trauma, stress, physical illness, other psychological conditions, etc. Depran forte helps stabilise the mood by lowering the excess activity of nerves in the brain and causes sedation. It can cause both weight gain or weight loss; it varies from person to person. The dose of the Depran forte tablet should be monitored carefully, especially in older patients and patients with liver and kidney disorders. The dose should also be monitored as it can cause dependency. It also has habit-forming potential. This medicine should not be stopped suddenly, as it can cause withdrawal symptoms. Tell your doctor the list of the medication you are taking, as this medicine can have interactions with them and have undesirable effects.
