Hi I've been given deptram10 (doxepin) for anxiety and depression.. 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...

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?

Doxepin dosage
1 Reply RSS
Will it hurt me if I take the drug doxepin out of its capsule, divide in half? The lowest dose my ins co has is 10mg. Dr had ordered 3 mg as I'm 68 and also don't process drugs well. ## Hello, Diana! How are you? It's very hard to get appropriate dosing, by doing that. Have you consulted your doctor? There are others they can prescribed instead, that come in lower dosages that may work better for you. For example, Prozac/Fluoxetine is available in 5mg tablets, which you could break in half for 2.5mg doses. The FDA classifies it as an SSRI and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and anxiety.

Stopped doxepin because of rapid weight gain.
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking doxepin for about 3 months. I gained over 30 pounds. I stopped taking it this week. Has anyone had this problem? Did the weight come off after you stopped taking it? How did you do it? ## Hello, Sophie! How are you? Most antidepressants, regardless of their class type, are known to cause weight gain. But yes, it usually does fall off, once you stop taking it, though it may take a month or two. Have you tried any others? There are some, such as Wellbutrin and Prozac that don't usually cause the weight gain, but can treat the same types of conditions. Their typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

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. ## Thank you for your reply. I have gone down to every other day 10 m...

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.
