DOXEPIN for Severe hives
3 Replies RSS
I had severe hives (urticaria) and monsteresque face swelling (angiodema). Nothing helped. I tried 6 doctors. The seventh put me on 10 mg of Doxepin. Cured! I work hard on keeping the weight off. Have gained some on this drug but what is the alternative? ## Hello, Darla! How are you? That can be a side effect of this medication, as reported by the FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and dry mouth. As to your other options, that depends on what else you've tried? Can you please post back with more details? ## Basically I have only tried Zyrtec. Every doctor prescribed it. The bottle says one every 24 hours if I remember correctly. But docs told me up to 7 per day and some said unlimited. Yet it didn't touch my hives/angeodema. Have gained 20 pound. Essential...

mylan 4250 yellow capsule
1 Reply RSS
What is it like? Is it like Xanax? I was prescribed it and I want to know more about it. ## @Milk, The pill you're describing marked 'Mylan 4250', is a 50mg Doxepin hydrcohloride tablet made by Mylan Pharmaceuticals. Doxepin differs from Xanax in that it is a tricyclic antidepressant, whilist Xanax is a benzodiazepine class drug. Even though both have similar applications for anxiety and depression... They both function differently from a pharmacological perspective. According to MedlinePlus.gov, Alprazolam (Xanax) works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Doxepin on the other hand reportedly works by increasing the amounts of certain natural substances in the brain that are needed for mental balance. Some people with certain chemical imbalances may respond bette...

Doxepin 10 mg for TMJ with buzzing in ears
2 Replies RSS
Could this medicine help with my TMJ symptoms include buzzing noise in ears. When tried I seem to notice noise more & become anxious. ## It can help with some types of nerve pain, I'm not sure how much it will help with TMJ, but it is worth trying, if your doctor approves. And most antidepressants can cause such side effects for the first few weeks, while your body is getting used to them, according to the NIH. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Has there been any change? ## I am going to start doxepin 10 mg tonight. It is worth a try. Hopefully it will make me deal with the buzzing in my ears, and TMJ symptoms a little bit better..and maybe be able to get some sleep

doxipin weight gain
1 Reply RSS
Will I lose the weighy that I gained while taking doxipin for scalp disease that is horriblely itchy. I also take & benedryl, do they me gain weight as well ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? Yes, you may lose it, if the weight gain was solely due to the use of the Doxepin, the FDA does list it as being a possible side effect. However, if you are using Benadryl regularly, you may also gain weight from it, antihistamines are well known to cause that, as well as dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

The problem is I googled the medication and didn't like what I read.im so scared to take this medication please help ## Hello, Ristina! How are you? What did you read that scared you? It's really no more or less risky than any other medication. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. You also have to remember that not everyone experiences such side effects.

Ever have allergic reactions from Doxepin?
2 Replies RSS
In the past year and a couple months, i've gotten allergic to 13 medications. I have a brain injury which gave me chronic insomnia etc. I now have 'chronic urticaria'. I'm curently prescribed Ranitidine, Xolaire, and Benadryl. My allergist just threw the prescription Doxepin at me because I got allergic to Cetirizine. I took the first pill of Doxepin last night, allergic reactions lasted 2 and a half hours because I can't take Prednisone every night. Is Doxepin a good medication for allergies? My doctor said it was coincidence and doubled my dose for next week. Only asking if anyone likes Doxepin and has any relief from allergies. Already taking Zolpidem, didn't seem like Doxepin helped any. ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? Doxepin isn't usually used to treat al...

how long does it take to kick in?
1 Reply RSS
My first night taking doxepin 75 mg, it's been an hr and nothing. Taking for insomnia, anyone have any opinions ## Hello, Shyanne! How are you? This medication is actually classified by the FDA as a tricyclic antidepressant, so it isn't an actual sleep aid, it can just cause drowsiness as a side effect. That said, it will take about 3 to 4 weeks, before it reaches its full level of efficacy in your body to see how well it works for you. Other possible side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?
