About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of DOXEPIN patients who developed ATRIAL FIBRILLATION.

FactMed provides MD-approved analysis to help both patients, researchers, and physicians accurately assess the risk profile for more than 20,000 different pharmaceutical products. The below report offers compiled information from Food & Drug Administration and FactMed user submissions. Between January 2004 and October 2012, 31 individuals taking DOXEPIN reported ATRIAL FIBRILLATION to the FDA. A total of 986 DOXEPIN drug adverse event reaction reports were made with the FDA during this time period. Often the FDA only receives reports of the most critical and severe cases; these numbers may therefore underrepresent the complication rate of the medication.

FDA Research Report

Introduction This page is designed to help you determine the relationship, if any, between DOXEPIN and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION. In doing so, we compare DOXEPIN with other drugs that cause ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, to help you evaluate whether or not DOXEPIN causes ATRIAL FIBRILLATION. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of DOXEPIN, so you can see if ATRIAL FIBRILLATION ranks among DOXEPIN's most well-known side effects.

Recent FactMed Activity for DOXEPIN


Issue Description / Topic Timestamp
CONCERN
ARTHRALGIA
I did not get inflammation or swelling of joints until I started taking Doxepin. It started about 1 month after starting doxepin. I have been taking it for 14 years now and have had swelling and inflammation since. I am trying to get off the drug now, but it is very addictive. Every time I have tried to get off it by decreasing the dose by 2.5 mg. , I get bad withdrawal symptoms and have to up the dose again. Bad drug..... to everyone out there who hasn't started taking it, DON'T START. You will regret it big time! 2014-11-21 08:51:51
CONCERN
COMPLETED SUICIDE
I have been on Doxepin for 14 years at a fairly minimal dose 30 mg currently, and I have more thoughts of suicide and have been closer to committing it than before I started on the Doxepin. This is a bad drug and I feel should not be taken at all or at least long term. I need to get off this drug due to all of the side effects (constipation, joint pain and swelling, increased photo-sensitivity, weight gain, increased cholesterol and others) and I will consult with my doctor soon. 2014-11-21 09:02:29

QUESTION
NIGHT SWEATS
I would love to find out if there is any connections between doxipan and night sweats. I have been experiencing night sweats then chills at about the exact same time every night. I take 30 mg of doxipan's sister drug, called seniquan at 10 pm each night. I then awake between 4:30 - 5:00 am every night soaking wet and shivering with extreme back and neck, and joint pain. (I was originally given the seniquan to alienate pain during the night and allowed to increase by 10 mg after a 3 week period of no relief. I began at 10 mg and after 9 weeks I am up to 30 mg. without relief yet. Any suggestions or answers please relay them to me.thank you, Colleen Imdmom5@yahoo.com 2015-02-07 22:08:38
QUESTION
ASTHENIA
I seem to be having this symptom. I take Doxepin for sleep. Worked my way up to 50 mg and slept well. Also got side effects of numbness in hands legs and feet; muscle weakness and fatigue throughout the day. Decreased the dose and symptoms dissipated for a week or so then returned. I also have had a weight gain of 25 lbs in about three months that I started Doxipin. Is there a connection with my symptoms and Doxipin? 2015-04-08 20:30:05

QUESTION
POLYP
I have high blood pressure and am on Verapamil and was introduced to Losartan about two years ago. I was diagnosed with fibermyalgia in 2011 but was not put on meds for that until 2014. It was then my physician placed me on Doxepin and Gabapentin. When I was placed on Levothyroxin the problems started to happen. I thought I was going crazy. Pains in my legs, severe headaches, uncontrolable walking you name it I've had it. I just had a colonoscopy the other and 11 polyps were discovered. That scared the shit out of me because I have never had more than one polyp discovered in the last 15 years. I'm terrified. 2015-12-10 21:17:54
QUESTION
DYSTONIA
will doxepin help with sensory neuropathic cough 2015-12-17 19:08:14
QUESTION
DYSTONIA
I have to say that my Dr's absolute carelessness prescribing doxepin has without a doubt ruined my life. The company that developed this drug should be drawn and quartered. Repeatedly. This drug is from Germany at a time just after Hitler and it is well known that some pharmaceutical companies backed Hitler and also tested their drugs on prisoners. The latter still needs confirmation but either way it was a very evil regime and this drug was developed around 15 years after Hitler. I think most of big pharma should be exposed to a serious ethnic cleansing of ceos, staff or even family members, this is a corrupt, dangerous and highly lobbying group of companies that should be erased from the planet immediately. The fda should be brought to court and if necessary, the death penalty should be used indiscriminately and thoroughly. Perhaps the entire government should be crippled with the largest class action lawsuit ever seen while the government leaders and their families should be forced to take overdose levels of every drug approved until death occurs. If anyone thinks this is extreme, 60,000 people died from vioxx and NOT ONE SINGLE JAIL SENTENCE DEVELOPED FROM THIS. So, smarten up and smell the coffee, we are getting sodomized daily by a government that should be mass buried while still alive. Fda, big pharma and the government should be cleansed by the military that works for them. Anyone that thinks this is wrong needs to put down the crack pipe, drink some strong coffee and give their head a violent shake. There is nothing said here that isn't common knowledge among the guilty party themselves. Thanks big pharma, the fda and the government for being so corrupt that everyone involved with this corruption should be thoroughly gassed in a chamber the nazis used. Peace. 2016-03-13 05:59:37

Anyone that thinks this is wrong needs to put down the crack pipe, drink some strong coffee and give their head a violent shake. There is nothing said here that isn't common knowledge among the guilty party themselves. Thanks big pharma, the fda and the government for being so corrupt that everyone involved with this corruption should be thoroughly gassed in a chamber the nazis used. Peace. 2016-03-13 05:59:56

You can get off of Doxepin with Touchstone Essentials; natural whole food supplements. I used it to get off of Doxepin which I had been on for 32 years. It was a nightmare trying to get off of it, but with these products I was finally able to do it. I called it, as did others, the drug from hell. Yes it causes night sweats, water retention, and many other things that can be very serious. www.harmony.mytouchstoneessentials.com I'm not trying to make a sale with these products; I know how it feels to want to get off of it, and just want to help. Check it out if you want to; and make your own decision. This company doesn't make any claims, but you can read what the products do and go from there. Good luck to all of you. It can be done...don't give up! It's now nice not to worry any more about interactions with Doxepin, and what I disliked the most was being unable to take many natural products that my body needed. 2016-05-22 17:49:00
