Doxepin Hydrochloride Fluid Retention, Hives, Weight Gain, Bedtime, Allergy
Posted over a year ago
I have been taking it for about a month now...25mg at bedtime...it does help me sleep. I am taking it for the itch associated with a severe hives reaction due to an allergy to 'something'!
Guest #4409: I have also had some weight gain and fluid retention...I didn't know if it was due to this rx or not...anyone else have this?
Littlebit2 - Been taking this med for 2 weeks and like you have a horrible itchy rash which started in my head. Have had this rash for almost a year and finally had a biopsy done. They found I had "papillary derma adema" or another name for itchy bumps. Tried to stop this med and the itching came back. The doctor says no cure but recommended solar heat (tanning spa). Haven't tried it yet.
Bobbir - I have been on the Doxepin for a couple months, I am now looking it up on here now, because I just came from the doc and he has no answer for the dry mouth and weird taste in my mouth. Also I have gained 40lbs in the last three month. Guess who is not taking Doxepin anymore...
Bobbir - Forgot to mention the dosage,,, usually 100 to 150 a night... sometimes I switch to Temazepam for a few days when the mouth taste and dryness is too much. I like the Doxepin because it helps with leg and feet cramps. But it is not worth all the other side effects.
