Amneal Doxepin - gluten free?

Please let me know if Amneal Doxepin is gluten free? I am highly allergic to gluten, and take this for a rash. ## Doxepin is not used to treat a rash, it is an antidepressant that is also used to treat certain types of nerve pain. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. What are the markings on the ones you are taking? Can you please post back and clarify, so I can double check? Thank you!

Doxepin dosage

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. ## I was on doxepin for 8 years and took myself off for one year. Took 100mg at bedtime for small fiber neuropathy. I need to get back on ...

are the negative side effects from doxepin permanent

I quit taking my doxepin cold turkey and I am wondering if the negative side effects from taking doxepin are permanent? ## Hello, Sean! How are you doing? What type of negative side effects did you experience? In theory, they should go away with time, but it may take several weeks, depending on how long you were taking it, according to the NIH. You may also experience some withdrawal effects, including headache, diarrhea, rebound depression and anxiety. ## Hi Sean. I too took Doxepin, for about 2 solid months and then a couple times a week. I still woke up, ON 4 A Day ( 1 every 8hrs, then 1 8hrs later and 2 at bedtime!) throughout the night SEVERAL TIMES! I quit it cold turkey but had no problems, that I know of. Seeing as my Health is Severely Declining every 6mons-a year. I have 3 Gas...

How long for 10mg doxepin to put you asleep

Just took 10 mg doxepin for sleep it's been over an hour and haven't yawned. Have I allowed enough time to go by? I'm thinking I must be immune to it - never had it before but I don't feel a wink of sleepiness. I am thinking of grabbing seroquel but dont want to mix it and have a bad effect. But don't want to stay up all nite either. I'm stuck!!! ## Silenor doesn't put you to sleep. It only helps you stay asleep (sleep maintenance). ## Doxepin is an antidepressant, so while it may cause drowsiness, as a side effect, according to FDA reports, it will not actually knock you out like a sedative or sleeping medication would. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Are you on any other medications? ## I just took 10mg doxepin for...

mylan 4250 yellow capsule

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...

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? ## I know it's been a few years, but how did doxepin work for You? I have been on it now for 5 days
