Doxpin Capsule Drug Information

Doxepin capsules belong to a group of drugs called tricyclic antidepressants that are prescribed to treat depression. The exact cause of depression is not known. This disease can be caused for no apparent reason or by a bitter event in life or a specific disease. People with depression have a low mood and are so moody that they even have trouble doing their daily activities.

Doxepin can help reduce the symptoms of depression. Doxepin capsules are useful for depressed people with sleep problems. The drug is thought to work by interfering with the function of brain chemicals (called neurotransmitters) that play a role in causing depressive symptoms.
