Brief Answer: Explained below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic! Nexito (escitalopram) is usually not fatal. Symptoms most often accompanying escitalopram overdose include sweating, tremors, convulsions, coma, dizziness, low blood pressure, insomnia or sedation, nausea, vomiting, sinus tachycardia and ECG changes. Acute renal failure has been very rarely reported accompanying overdose. The severity of effects would depend both on the dose ingested and the physical condition of the person. Overdoses of up to 600 mg have been reported in literature, usually with no associated fatalities. I hope this answers your query. If not, please let me know what specific information you require so that I can help you better. Best wishes. Dr Preeti Parakh MD Psychiatry
