Good Morning,


Doxepin belongs to a class of drugs called tricyclic antidepressants. I was on this type of med however a different one for years and also found at first my head felt foggy but never had any vision problems.



If you are having problems with your eyes and head fullness I would contact your physician to discuss these sx soon as this may not be the right medication for you.



Never be afraid to advocate for yourself. Good to see you here and hope to see more of you.



Gentle Hugs,



Kitt

You may be onto something as often weaning off of a med can cause you to feel crummy and then starting a new one right away. I have a hard time getting onto new meds as my head always get foggy and dizzy.


I would still recommend you check with your Doctor if you continue to have problems. Sometimes adjustments can be made in doses.



Good Luck,



Kitt
