Sorry about the problem you had with it. These medications can cause that, in some people that take them and usually stopping them is the best thing. Learn more Doxepin details here.

I Need To Identify A Prescription Pill
Rugby 3893 small capsule - dark green/light green ## Hi Kay, Based on the description provided, the closest match I could find is a dark/light green capsule imprinted with "RUGBY 3737"; which is identified as Doxepin HCl 75 mg. I know it doesn't completely match up with the numbers you mentioned, but I can at least determine that the manufacturer is the same (Rugby Pharmaceuticals). If anything, I would recommend contacting the manufacturer directly regarding your inquiry at: rugbylaboratories.com/?m=contact I hope this info helps!
