Please tell me what I should know about asendin (amoxapine)?

Please tell me what I should know about asendin (amoxapine)?

Asendin (amoxapine): Mechanism of action in the management of depressive disorders is unknown but may involve inhibition of reuptake of norepinephrine and to a lesser extent serotonin by Amoxapine and its active metabolites, 8-hydroxyamoxapine and 7-hydroxyamoxapine. Amoxapine is a derivative of the antipsychotic agent Loxapine and has dopamine-receptor blocking properties; may possess some antipsychotic activity. Specific side effects are dry mouth blurred vision lightheadedness dizziness and constipation as well as a longer-term risk of developing tardiva dyskinesia. As with all antidepressants there is a risk of increased suicidal thinking as the dose is started. It is an older antidepressant that is not currently use very often but certainly can be very effective if nothing else has been effective for you. Best wishes. Source: www. Drugs. Com.

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more
