Silenor is an antidepressant medication used to treat insomnia.

Doxepin hydrochloride is a tricyclic antidepressant that binds to histamine receptors and inhibits their activity. This action may allow Silenor to improve your ability to stay asleep and combat insomnia.

  • Take at least 3 hours after eating
  • Only perform tasks and activities necessary for preparing yourself to sleep after your dose
  • Most adults take 6mg once a day
  • Elderly patients should start by taking 3mg once daily before gradually increasing to 6mg daily if needed and tolerated

Side Effects

Silenor may cause some side effects to develop while improving your sleep maintenance. Speak with your healthcare provider for more information relating to any symptoms that you might encounter during treatment.

Common Silenor side effects:

  • Drowsiness, tiredness
  • Nausea
  • Cold symptoms (stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat)

Some Silenor users have been reported performing activities while not fully conscious and have no later memories of doing so. These activities may include walking, driving, or calling people on the phone. Speak with your healthcare provider right away if any similar instances occur.

Serious Side Effects

Some more serious adverse reactions may occur when taking Silenor. Stop using this medication and call your healthcare provider if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Unusual thoughts or behaviours
  • Confusion, hallucinations
  • Depression, thoughts about self-harm
  • Uncontrolled muscle movements
  • Seizure
  • Light-headedness, feeling faint

  • Signs of an infection (flu-like symptoms, swelling, skin redness, diarrhea, skin sores or white patches, difficulty breathing, pain or burning during urination)

Allergic Reactions

Do not use Silenor if you are allergic to Doxepin HCL or any of the other tablet ingredients. If you develop signs of an allergic reaction, stop taking this medication and contact your healthcare provider.

Silenor allergy symptoms may include:

  • Hives
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat


Some Silenor users have gotten out of bed to perform an activity while not fully awake and have no recollection of doing so the next morning. These activities may include driving, making and eating food, making phone calls, having sex, or sleepwalking. Your risk of doing these activities while not fully conscious may increase if you drink alcohol or take other medications that cause sleepiness.

Do not take Silenor if you have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAO) inhibitor medication within the last 14 days to avoid a drug interaction.

Do not use Silenor if you have untreated narrow angle glaucoma or severe difficulties urinating.

To ensure your safety when taking Silenor, tell your healthcare provider if you have ever had any of the following:

  • History of depression, mental illness, suicidal thoughts
  • Severe sleep apnea
  • Kidney or liver problems
  • History of drug or alcohol abuse or dependence

Do not drink alcohol or take any medications that cause you to become dizzy or drowsy because they can increase these reactions caused by Silenor.

Do not drive or perform any dangerous activities after taking a dose of Silenor. The medication may make you feel sleepy the following day after taking it; do not drive or perform hazardous activities until you feel fully awake.

Tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Newborns may develop sedation symptoms including breathing problems, sluggishness, low muscle tone, feeding issues, and withdrawal symptoms if Silenor and other similar medicines are taking during the third trimester. Do not stop taking Silenor without speaking with your healthcare provider.

Do not breastfeed while taking Silenor because it can pass into your breast milk and may cause harm to your baby.

Some drugs may interact with Silenor and cause adverse reactions. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medications that you take, including over the counter medicines, but especially any of the following:

  • Certain allergy medications
  • Medicines that cause drowsiness or affect your breathing
  • Cimetidine
  • Tolazamide
  • Sertraline

Ask your healthcare provider before using any medications that cause drowsiness because they can worsen this effect created by Silenor. These drugs include opioid medications, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medication for anxiety or seizures.

How long before bed should I take Silenor?

Your dose of Silenor should be taken in the evening within 30 minutes before you retire to bed. It is recommended that you not perform any activities unrelated to preparing yourself for bed after taking your dose because the medication will quickly make you drowsy.

Can you take Silenor on an as needed basis?

You can take Silenor as needed when you have significant troubles sleeping from insomnia, but many treatment plans may have you take Silenor each day. Take this medication exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider and do not change your dose or administration regimen without first consulting them for the best therapeutic results.
