Common side effects of doxepin include drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation and trouble urinating. More serious side effects of taking Silenor are intense heartburn, agitation, confusion, anxiety, shaking and severe abdominal pain. Tell your doctor right away if you experience any serious side effects or if common side effects persist.
In extremely rare cases, some patients may experience severe dizziness, fast or irregular heartbeat, fainting, seizures, eye pain or swelling, widened pupils and vision changes. In these cases, get medical help immediately.
Avoid taking MAO inhibitors while using Silenor, as interactions may cause serious and possibly fatal effects. Specifically avoid MAO inhibitors such as isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline and tranylcypromine while taking Silenor.
Certain medications may affect the removal of doxepin from your body and affect how the medication should work. These include cimetidine, St. John’s Wort, terbinafine, drugs to treat irregular heart rate and SSRI antidepressants.
Some medications such as amiodarone, cisapride, dofetilide, pimozide, procainamide, quinidine, sotalol and macrolide antibiotics may affect your heart rhythm while you are taking Silenor. Let your doctor know if you are using any of these medications. Also, make sure your doctor is aware if you are also ingesting products that cause drowsiness such as pain relievers, alcohol, cannabis, sleep drugs and muscle relaxants.
