doxepin 10 mg withdrawel
I was on Doxepin for a year and worked my way down to 10 mgs doctor said I could go down to10 mgs and now I am taking it every other day. What is the best wsy to come off or could I just stop it like the doctor said I could? Would like to stop if now, great drug for depression but the weight gain is really bad. ## Hello, Tweety bird! How are you? You could try just stopping, as your doctor said, or if you prefer not to, you could start skipping more days, between doses. It's really up to you, but 10mgs is a very low dose. Have you tried anything else for depression? Prozac is known to work wonderfully, without causing the weight gain. Its other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and muscle aches.

first night on doxepin
Hi I took my first dose of doxepin 25mg last night and feel so out of it today ,really weird spaced out how long will this last as I cant afford time off work please help ## Hello, Amanda! How are you feeling? Has it improved yet? The initial side effects can last about 4 weeks, or so, while your body gets used to the medication, then they should start to taper off in intensity. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness and weight changes.

first night
Hi I took my first dose of doxepin 25mg last night and feel so out of it today ,really weird spaced out how long will this last as I cant afford time off work please help ## Hello, Amanda! How are you feeling? Has it eased up, at all, yet? Some people can experience that with antidepressants, when they first start taking them. Other side effects may include nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight changes. But they usually don't last more than a few weeks, while your body is adjusting to the medication.

Success Stories
I have been put on doxepin for anxiety and depression. Could anyone please share success stories? HAs anyone not gained weight on it? Will I wake up on time for work and be able to function for the day? ## Hello, Shelly! How are you? I haven't taken it myself, but yes, there have been many success stories posted. This is a tricyclic antidepressant and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and sweating. Not everyone gains weight with it, either. That is just a possible side effect. The best thing to do is to maintain a healthy diet and get lots of proper exercise to help offset any that might occur. Is there anything else I can help with?

Found a doxepin hcl capsule
I found a capsule in my mums room, its red and blue no imprints just wanting to know what it can do to a thirteen year old if she took one of them? Please help fast. ## How do you know it's Doxepin, if it has no imprints? And most medications aren't going to hurt a 13 years if they only took one, unless they're allergic to it or take a lot of it. Did you take it, is that what you're saying? ## No I mean I found it in my mums room, in the box of captules. She was about to overdose on them, until I stopped her. They have no imprints on the captule. No I didnt take it either, thy had a white powder inside them, red one side and blue on the other side. It had Doxepin labled on the front of it.
