About Aldep H Tablet 15's

Aldep H Tablet 15's is a combination medicine used to treat moderate to severe depression associated with moderate to severe anxiety. Depression is a mood disorder characterised by sadness, unhappiness, anger, hopelessness or loss. Anxiety is a mental health disorder characterised by feelings of anxiety, worry or fear that are strong enough to interfere with one’s daily activities. Anxiety and depression can occur at the same time.

Aldep H Tablet 15's is a combination of two drugs: Amitriptyline (tricyclic anti-depressant) and Chlordiazepoxide (benzodiazepine anxiolytic). Amitriptyline works by affecting certain chemical messengers in the brain that communicate between brain cells, thereby regulating mood and treating depression.

In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision and bloating. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Consult your doctor immediately if you have suicidal thoughts, such as killing or harming yourself. Do not take Aldep H Tablet 15's if you are pregnant as it may cause birth defects. Consult your doctor before taking Aldep H Tablet 15's if you are breastfeeding. Avoid driving or operating machinery as Aldep H Tablet 15's causes sleepiness, dizziness and might impair thinking and motor skills.
