Overdosage of tripelennamine hydrochloride may give rise to excitement, ataxia, and convulsions.
Depression of the central nervous system and incoordination may occur when the drug is used at therapeutic dose levels.

While poisonous snake bites have been treated with antihistaminic drugs, other conjunctive therapy is required because of toxic reactions associated with the protein complex of venom.
