sinus issues with silenor, 6 mg

Been using silenor, 6 mg at bedtime for 7 nights and noticed daily increase in sinus problems, i.e. congestion, pressure, headache, runny nose, dry eyes. Anyone else notice this??? I had been using doxepin capsules, 25-50 mg for sleep without this kind of response prior to starting the Silenor, 6 mg tabs. ## They are the same medication, Doxepin, so it's doubtful that it's from the medication. Have you consulted your doctor, yet? It could be due to allergies, a sinus infection, or several other things.


Interested in new drugs discovered approved and authenticated. ## There is a link towards the top of the page, in the right hand column to recent FDA drug approvals. It gives a list of them, by date and a clickable link to more information on it. And here's a direct link, in case you have trouble finding that one: Is there anything else I can help you with?
