    Doxepin history and info

    Doxepin is a Tricyclic Antidepressant that exerts its action on Serotonin and Norepinephrine but also blocks Dopamine and the histamine receptors. Histamine is involved in the immune response and Dopamine is a critical neurotransmitter that plays important roles in both the brain and body.  Serotonin is primarily found in the gastrointestinal tract, central nervous system and in the blood platelets while Norepinephrine works as both a hormone and a neurotransmitter, stimulating the heart, sweat glands, blood vessels, large internal organs and the adrenals whereas Serotonin is involved in sleep, memory, regulation of the endocrine system, body temperature, mood and behavior and muscle movement. A study published in JAMA internal Medicine in early 2015 found Sinequan (Doxepin) increased the risk of developing dementia. All Antidepressants can cause withdrawal symptoms if abruptly stopped or tapered too rapidly and Doxepin is no different.  Contact Us if you need help tapering Doxepin or have questions.

    Doxepin is a psychotropic agent with antidepressant and anti-anxiety properties that was developed by Boehringer-Ingelheim, now part of the Roche group. Sinequan was tested from 1963-1968 in different German and Swiss psychiatric institutions and was approved in Germany initially, then in other countries.

    Because Doxepin also blocks the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, it is not recommended for patients with a history of glaucoma, increased intraocular pressure or urinary retention. Like all Tricyclic antidepressants, when given in high doses, Doxepin can induce sinus tachycardia, changes in conduction time and arrhythmias of the heart. A few instances of unexpected death have been reported in patients with cardiovascular disorders. Myocardial infarction and stroke have also been reported with drugs of this class. Therefore, Doxepin should be administered with extreme caution to patients with a history of cardiovascular disease, those with circulatory issues and elderly patients. Since Tricyclic agents are known to reduce the seizure threshold, Doxepin should be used with caution in patients with a history of convulsive disorders.
