... this drug and kestosis?
Carbohydrate is the main food group that is required by the body for producing energy, and it plays a key part in a healthy, balanced diet.
Carbohydrates are normally broken down into glucose which is then converted into energy and transported to the body’s muscles and organs.
However, if there is a lack of glucose, or if it is not possible for glucose to be broken down - for example, if your body does not produce enough insulin - the body will have to break down stored fat in order to convert it into energy. This is known as fat metabolism.
Fat metabolism causes a build up of ketones in the blood, resulting in ketosis.
Antidepressants (eg Imipramine) may impair glycaemic (blood-glucose) control.
So in answer to your question NO ketosis is not treated with imipramine.
There is suggestion that antidepressants such as imipramine can interfere with blood-sugar control which potentially could result in ketosis in susceptible individuals.
Hope this helps.
