What Is Amoxapine?

Amoxapine is a medication that is used to treat patients with depression. This medication can improve your mood and sense of well-being to help you enjoy your everyday life more.

How Does Amoxapine Work?

Amoxapine is a tricyclic antidepressant medication. It works to restore and correct imbalances of natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain.

Amoxapine Brand Name

Amoxapine is the generic version of Asendin, a tricyclic antidepressant used in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and agitation. Amoxapine may be cheaper than Asendin. To determine which medication is right for you, talk to your doctor.

Amoxapine Dosage and Treatment

Before taking this medication, read the medication guide given to you by your doctor or pharmacist. Consult your doctor or pharmacist with any outstanding questions you may have.

This medication is to be taken by mouth with or without food, once or more times a day. To lessen the initial side effects of Amoxapine, it is best to start this medication at a lower dose and then steadily increase your dosage once you become used to it. Follow any instructions given by your doctor carefully.

Once you and your doctor have found the right dosage for you, this dose can be taken once daily or as prescribed by your doctor. “The number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and the length of time you take the medicine depend on the medical problem for which you are using the medicine,” according to Mayo Clinic.

It is usually best to take Amoxapine before bed, because it can cause daytime drowsiness. Some people may experience insomnia after taking Amoxapine. Discuss any sleeping problems with your doctor. Your dosage will be administered to you based on your medical condition, age, and your response to other treatments such as therapy.

In order to enjoy the full benefits of Amoxapine, take it regularly. For help remembering your medication, take your dose at the same time(s) each day. 

You may not notice any improvements from Amoxapine right away. It may take up to two weeks before you begin to feel a difference in your symptoms.

You should continue to take this medication even if you begin to feel better. Patients who suddenly stop taking this medication often experience worsened or even more severe symptoms. 

Do not abruptly stop taking Amoxapine without consulting your doctor first. They will advise you on the correct method to stop this medication, which usually involves weaning off of it gradually.
