Xepin

Cambridge Healthcare Supplies Ltd

DESCRIPTION

Xepin cream contains the active ingredient doxepin hydrochloride. Doxepin is a medicine that is related to the tricyclic antidepressants. However, when doxepin is applied to the skin it can relieve itching.

Doxepin cream is thought to work by blocking histamine receptors in the skin, therefore reducing some of the reactions that cause itching associated with eczema. The medicine is also absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream and can cause some drowsiness. This may also help to relieve the itch of eczema.
