Amoxapine Drug Information
Amoxapine (Asendin®) is a medicine prescribed to treat cases of depression, also known as clinical depression or major depression. This medication is particularly useful for people who also have anxiety or agitation and people with psychotic depression (depression with hallucinations, delusions, or other psychotic features).
If you have a history of heart disease or have recently had a heart attack, or if you have a history of suicidal attempts or thoughts, your healthcare provider needs to know this information before prescribing amoxapine, as this drug may not be right for you. In addition, tell him or her about any other medications you are taking and discuss your drinking habits. This will help in devising a treatment plan that is right for you.
