      Sinequan history and info

      Sinequan is a psychotropic agent with antidepressant and anti-anxiety properties. A study published in JAMA internal Medicine in early 2015 found Sinequan increased the risk of developing dementia.

      Because Sinequan 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, Sinequan can induce sinus tachycardia, changes in conduction time and arrhythmias of the heart.

      All Antidepressants can cause withdrawal symptoms if abruptly stopped or tapered too rapidly and Sinequan is no different. It is recommended to taper slowly.

      Sinequan (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.

      Sinequan 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.

      According to the FDA:

      Consideration should be given to changing the therapeutic regimen, including possibly discontinuing the medication, in patients whose depression is persistently worse, or who are experiencing emergent suicidality or symptoms that might be precursors to worsening depression or suicidality, especially if these symptoms are severe, abrupt in onset, or were not part of the patient's presenting symptoms.

      Withdrawal Symptoms: The possibility of development of withdrawal symptoms upon abrupt cessation of treatment after prolonged SINEQUAN administration should be borne in mind. These are not indicative of addiction and gradual withdrawal of medication should not cause these symptoms.
