Spectra 75 MG Description

Spectra 75mg Cap belongs to a group of antidepressants, primarily used to treat depression and anxiety when the patient becomes intolerant to other tricyclic anti-depressant medicines. High anxiety l

evels in a person can cause panic attacks, with intense feelings of nervousness, fear, sudden onset of sweating of palm, feet and face, hyperventilation, fast heartbeat, and skin flushing. Spectra 75mg Cap contains Doxepin, a tricyclic anti-depressant that works by increasing the level of chemicals in the brain known as GABA responsible for mood changes and causing depression. As a result, your mood is enhanced, and you feel better. If Spectra 75mg Cap is prescribed for insomnia, it helps us sleep for more time and treats sleeping difficulty. The dose and duration of Spectra 75mg Cap can vary depending upon your condition and the severity of the infection. Some people may experience common side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, mood changes, headache, numbness, tingling. These side effects associated with Spectra 75mg Cap do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. Do not stop taking Spectra 75mg Cap despite symptomatic relief. Treat your condition effectively; continue taking Spectra 75mg Cap for as long as prescribed for you. Do not take Spectra 75mg Cap if you have a seizure disorder, severe kidney disease, depression, anxiety or mental illness. Inform your doctor immediately if you experience confusion, seizure, trouble speaking after taking Spectra 75mg Cap.
