  • doxepin

    I just got back from my first time to a pain clinic. He gave me a nerve block which he called an epidural. They sedated me when doing it and it was not bad at all. It is just starting to wear off so don't know if I will have pain later or not. BUT, he put me on doxepin. I told him I have taken elavil and I gain weight so fast I did not want to take it. Now upon reading about doxepin, it sounds like it has the same side effects. Does anyone know anything about this drug or are you on it? Please, looking for answers.............I am at the bottom of a tunnel and feel there is no way out, no matter what I try.
