Sinequan (Doxepin) belongs to a group of medications called tricyclic antidepressants. It is used to treat mental or mood disorders such as depression and anxiety associated with alcoholism, manic depression, or other mental illness. This medication acts on the norepinephrine and serotonin receptors in the axon terminals and blocks them. Sinequan may help improve your mood, provide a better sleep, relieve anxiety, or tension, and increase energy levels.
