Drowsiness can be a normal side effect of Doxepin, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes.

If it makes you very sleepy, you might do better taking it at night, before you go to bed. Have you informed your prescribed of the problem you're having?

How are you taking half a capsule? There's no way to get a precise dosage that way, so that could also be contributing to the problem. Did you doctor tell you to do that?
