Depen is an oral tablet made up of penicillamine, an antirheumatics drug. Depen is also known internationally as D-Penamine. You can buy this medication in a generic form (penicillamine) as well as the brand choice, Depen. Both of these options are available in 125mg and 250mg. Appearance may vary.

Depen is most commonly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (affects joints in areas such as hands, wrists, or knees, skin, eyes, lungs, heart, blood, or nerves). Wilson's disease (which high levels of copper in the body cause damage to the liver, brain, and other organs), and a certain disorder which causes painful kidney stones (cystinuria; pebble-like bunches of salt and mineral in the urine).

In conditions were joints are affected, penicillamine helps by decreasing the pain and inflammation. Too much copper is the body can be treat with penicillamine because it binds the copper and helps to remove it from the body. Removing the extra copper can help to improve liver function and possible mental/mood changes one might experience. When it comes to kidney stones, penicillamine helps by reducing the amount of cystine (the cause of kidney stones) in the urine.
