How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

Doxylamine Succinate 20 mg/Pyridoxine HCl 100 mg Slow Release Capsules are a compounded formulation designed to treat a variety of conditions such as nausea and vomiting, insomnia, and premenstrual syndrome. The active ingredients in this formulation are doxylamine succinate, an antihistamine that works by blocking the action of histamine, and pyridoxine hydrochloride, a form of vitamin B6 that aids in the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and sleep.

This formulation is encapsulated with Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer. This polymer is designed to gradually release the encapsulated medication over an extended period of time. This slow release mechanism offers sustained therapeutic effects, reduces the frequency of dosing, and improves patient compliance, particularly for medications that require a controlled and prolonged release profile.

The recommended dose for this formulation is one capsule taken orally once daily, preferably at bedtime. It is crucial to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider and not to exceed the recommended dose. Additionally, it is important to avoid taking this medication with alcohol or other medications that may cause drowsiness, as this can enhance the sedative effects of doxylamine succinate.

If you have any questions about this formulation or its mechanism of action, it is recommended to consult with your healthcare provider or pharmacist. They can provide you with the most accurate and personalized information based on your specific health condition and medication needs.
