What are the side effects of amoxapine?

Amoxapine side effects are most commonly felt in the digestive system. You may experience nausea, dry mouth, constipation, weight changes, appetite changes, and either difficulty urinating or more frequent urination. You may also experience disruptions to your normal sleep pattern such as insomnia, restlessness, drowsiness, weakness, or nightmares.

It's also not uncommon to experience headaches, pounding in the chest, anxiety, swelling, blurred vision, or excessive sweating. If these side effects persist or get worse, contact your doctor.
