Uses

Spectra (Doxepin) is a dibenzoxepine tricyclic antidepressant. Its actions and uses are similar to amitriptyline. It has moderate antimuscarinic and marked sedative properties and it inhibits serotonin reuptake activity.

Dosage and Administration

In the treatment of depression, Spectra (Doxepin) is taken orally as hydrochloride although doses are expressed in terms of the base. The initial ose is 75mg daily, and adjust the dose according to response. Doses of up to 300mg daily may be required for severe depression, mildly affected patients may respond to as little as 25 to 50mg daily.

Daily doses up to 100mg may be given in divided doses or as a single dose at bedtime. If the total daily dose exceeds 100mg, it should be divided to three times, although the largest portion, up to a maximum of 100mg, may be given at bedtime. The maximum single dose is 150mg in the USA. A suggested starting dose in the elderly is 10 to 50mg daily.

Side effects

Some side effects which may occur as a result of taking Spectra (Doxepin) include:

  • Drowsiness or dizziness
  • Constipation
  • Blurred vision
  • Swelling of the breasts in male patients
  • Weight gain

Patients should consult their physician immediately if any of the above mentioned side effects persist or worsen, or if they notice severe changes in mood, persistent heartburn, severe stomach pain, a rapid pounding heartbeat or seizures.

Precautions

It is important to understand that some people, especially younger individuals, using Spectra (Doxepin) experience thoughts of suicide when they first take an antidepressant. They need to be closely monitored and they need to know who to contact if they feel that they are in a desperate situation. As a result this type of medication is typically not prescribed for those under 18 years of age.

Tell your doctor if you have thyroid problems, heart problems, liver disease, or kidney disease. Such individuals aren`t good candidates for the use of this medicine. Many people find that they are very drowsy when they take this medicine for the first few weeks. Avoid driving a vehicle or machinery until you know how your body will react to it.

Anyone taking MAOIs or other forms of medication need to tell their doctor before hand. It can be beneficial to take it along with seeking counseling either individually or in a group setting. It isn`t a good idea to use illegal drugs or to consume alcohol while using this medication. Women who are pregnant or nursing shouldn`t use it.
