Frequently asked questions about doxepin

What is doxepin?

Doxepin is a prescription medication used for the treatment of anxiety and depression. It is also prescribed as a treatment for insomnia. Doxepin balances naturally occurring chemicals in the brain and slows down activity to achieve mental balance and the calm needed for healthy sleep.

What is doxepin used to treat?

Doxepin is indicated for use as a treatment for depression, anxiety, and insomnia. It restores chemical balance in the brain and slows down cognitive activity to allow for sleep.

Depression and anxiety are common mental health disorders that affect how you feel and behave.

Depression will affect nearly 1 in 6 people over the course of their lifetime. It often causes feelings of sadness or hopelessness, a loss of interest in daily activities, sleeping troubles, and other symptoms.

Anxiety is an umbrella term used to describe conditions such as agoraphobia (fear of places or situations that may cause panic), social anxiety, separation anxiety, panic disorder, and more. Each of these disorders is accompanied by different symptoms and complications.

Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder. According to the Cleveland Clinic, nearly 70 million Americans are affected by sleep disorders every year. Insomnia, in particular, affects 35-50% of adults. This condition makes it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or get enough sleep. Insomnia may affect your health, work performance, and overall quality of life.

How does doxepin work?

Doxepin is classified as a tricyclic antidepressant medication. These drugs work by blocking the reabsorption of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine – two chemicals that play crucial roles in healthy mental balance. By blocking the reabsorption of these chemicals, doxepin allows them to stay in the brain for a longer period of time. This can help improve concentration, focus, and mood.

As a treatment for insomnia, this same action helps slow brain activity – which can promote ease and calm before bed. This can help patients who struggle with insomnia to fall asleep.

What are the common side effects of doxepin?

Doxepin has been shown to cause some side effects. If these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider.

WARNING: SUICIDAL THOUGHTS AND BEHAVIORS

Antidepressants used for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior. Antidepressant medication, such as doxepin, may change mental health conditions (such as mood and behavior) in unexpected ways. Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing suicidal thoughts or other sudden changes in your mental health. Before starting treatment with doxepin, or any other antidepressant, discuss the risks and benefits of the medication with your doctor.

What is the typical starting dose of doxepin?

The starting dose of doxepin will vary depending on your age and the strength of the medication. For adults and children over 12 dealing with depression or anxiety, you will likely be prescribed a 75 mg dose to be taken orally either once a day, or split into smaller doses throughout the day. This dosage may be adjusted as needed.

For adults receiving treatment for insomnia, you will likely be prescribed a 6 mg tablet to be taken orally once a day. Older adults may be prescribed a 3 mg tablet to be taken once a day. This dosage may be adjusted as needed.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of doxepin without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
