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.
