Obviously you need to call your doc and ask him about this, but it does sound high. Depnil is Clomipramine, and in treating Depression, one would generally start at 25 mg at night, building up soon to 75 to 100 mg a day in dividied doses. THouigh some would go as high as 300-350 mg a day ( not more ) this would be uncommon, and only on the advice of a specialist psychiatrist. After 2 years you may well be ready to come off the drug --- again, your prescribing doc should advise about how best to come off them gradually, depending omn the dose and the strength of tablet you are taking. If the depression return in the future, there are more modern drugs for depression, not especially expensive, effective and with less side-effects
