Hi Ed,

The Dex I have is sustained release spansules which is great because I can open up the capsule and take very small amounts to begin with.

So if doxepin also reduces bp, then why is it contraindicated with Dex? Does it have something to do with it's electrical conduction effects?

I'm not sure what my bp is because it has changed so much every time I've been at the clinic in the last 6 months. One time the systolic pressure was 90. The last time I went the systolic pressure was in the upper 120s according to the automatic tester. I was concerned about that reading as it has never been that high so less than 5 minutes later the doctor took it manually and it was 110. Basically, I haven't had much of a problem with bp yet but my father died of a heart attack at age 45 so I'm very concerned about anything that effects the heart.
