About Doxepin HCL

What is doxepin HCl?

Doxepin hydrochloride is a tricyclic antidepressant used in the treatment of anxiety, depression and, at times, insomnia. It works by increasing certain naturally occurring chemicals found in the brain that help maintain proper mental balance. It is available in tablet, capsule, or liquid form and only with a doctor’s prescription.

How do I take doxepin HCl?

Doxepin HCl is an oral medication usually taken one to three times a day; however, your physician may adjust the amount and frequency of dosage. Take this medication at or around the same time every day; it can be taken with or without food. If you are taking the tablet or capsule, take it with water.

When taking the liquid form, use the metered dropper provided, and place the prescribed amount in milk or skim milk, water, or juice (grapefruit, tomato, orange, pineapple, or orange); do not mix it in grape juice, soft drinks, or any carbonated beverages. Prepare this medication only when it is time to take it.

If this medication has been prescribed to treat insomnia, take it thirty minutes before you are ready to go to sleep, and take it only if you are able to get a full seven to eight hours sleep.
