    Doxepin for Drive disorders; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Because of the sleep disturbances, Doxepin helped me a lot in the beginning. Could switch off and was pleasantly tired. A fatigue that I know from before, when I still worked professionally and generally after my work was done. Also helps with chronic pain; in addition to the use of painkillers. After some time, I also had to take zolpidem. That’s a hammer. After about 20 minutes, I’m totally tired, would fall asleep sitting. I have to go to bed immediately. The best thing is to go to bed right after Einhame. Otherwise there will be difficulties in walking. But sleeping through 7-8 hours, as stated, is not enough. After about 5 hours, I wake up. But I am tired again often, then I nod again. But I am very thirsty and dry and have to urinate.

    Doxepin for Bipolar disorder; Depression

    In hospitalization with severe depression in bipolar disorder, doxepin and lamotrigine were crept in. There were no side effects with lamotrigine. However, I have gained almost 9 kg of Doxepin, and I also suffered from dry mouth. In the meantime, I (according to doctor) also micturition (bladder emptying disorder) and thus had a serious bladder infection. Unfortunately I continued to have so-called mixed and / or rapid cycling phases, so I got Seroquel Prolong. I take it from now on. 600 mg. It works against me especially against my massive irritability. Unfortunately, I suddenly have problems with low blood pressure, dizziness and nausea when suddenly getting up. In the meantime, however, this has become much better!

    Doxepin for Bipolar disorder; Depression

    Hello everybody, in 2002 I was diagnosed with a bipolar disorder. Back then I was still living near Stuttgart, where I had a doctor who really took good care of me. However, my husband and I moved to the beginning of 2003 in the Palatinate and I had to look for a new doctor. I was with two different psychologists, but I did not feel well from the start. My doctor prescribed Doxepin for me then. I became very tired of it and the depression itself did not improve after my subjective condition. I felt very depressed and unhappy. I could no longer take care of my household. My husband cooked when he came home from work in the evening and did the laundry. Although I was at home all day, but so impotent that I could not perform even the simplest tasks. The two psychologists, whom I then visited one after the other at the urging of my husband, continued to prescribe Doxepin for me, but both refused a talk therapy. The first said, one must first wait until the drug shows its effect, the second said in my illness, drugs are the most effective remedy and I would be better soon better. In the meantime, the medications made me “better” in the meantime (rather different, not really better), that I gradually got my daily life back on track, but I felt empty and dull inside. I had gained 18 kilos with the medication and practically floated next to me, because I never felt really awake. Nothing made me happy, my life had no quality of life at all. It went so far that in 2005 I thought about suicide. A co-worker of my husband recommended us a doctor who helped her very much and since my husband was always eager to do everything to make me feel better, we went to see this doctor. At that time Dr. med. Jonas Thomczyk in Kaiserslautern. I immediately felt very comfortable in his presence. He had a high level of competence and was ready to offer me a talk therapy. Unlike the other two doctors, I felt very well looked after and Dr. Thomczyk was available to me outside of his office hours and always ready for an appointment at short notice. Alone through the talk therapy I was after a short time noticeably better. Dr. Thomczyk discontinued the doxepin and prescribed me another medicine: Maprolu. I had never heard of it before, but I was happy to try it out. I can only report positive about the drug. After dropping the Doxepin and being on Maprolu, I soon felt much more comfortable. There was no sign of tiredness and I even lost some weight during the first few weeks. That combined with the talk therapy motivated a lot and after a month I already had a completely changed attitude to life. My mood, which had been neutral or bad for years, brightened and I was able to switch from half-time to full-time. I was much more resilient, more balanced, more able to criticize and my interest in many things came to life again. Today I live without medication and I’m fine. I have talk therapy with Dr. med. Thomczyk claimed, but he has unfortunately abandoned his location in Kaiserslautern. Unfortunately I could not hear the last two appointments with him and so my therapy ended with him without me knowing where I can reach him today. I think that’s a pity. Although he insisted on a final discussion and we also phoned again, but I forgot to give me his new contact information. Maybe someone is with him in the meantime in treatment and reads that. I would be glad if I knew where he works today. I would like to thank him again for his help. Without him, I would probably still float around like a zombie and see no point. Here is the exact job title: Dr. med. med. Jonas Thomczyk Specialist in Neurology and Psychiatry, Specialist in Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis Maybe someone knows where to reach him … he is a really good doctor. Conclusion: My experiences with Doxepin were not really good. However, I would like to emphasize that I have a friend who swears by this drug. On the whole, it depends on the person and how it works. Maprolu helped me a lot and I would like to recommend it here. Greetings Renate

    Doxepin for Pain (back); Sleep disorders; Depression

    I have been taking Palladon Retard 8mg for 2 years as a permanent medication & amp; Palladium 2,6mg (up to 4 capsules, after consultation with my pain therapist) if needed. Not even in the first few weeks after the start of intake, very serious side effects occurred. The only are digestive problems (constipation) but I have very well with psyllium, whole grains, dried fruits and of course a lot of drink. The only thing that really bothers me is my libido loss. Since I also got a depression a year ago, my doctor gave me, after previous contact of a psychotherapist, the drug Citalopram. She prescribed me 1×1 in the morning and then I should dose myself higher if I realized that this dosage would not be enough for me. In the first weeks I was totally knocked out and tired and I had to force myself to get out of bed, but when this was over I started to feel really good. Today I take 2 Citalopram for several months in the morning and I can cope with it without any side effects. I have been very bad at Ein & amp; By sleeping. Wake up several times a night and can not fall asleep again were part of everyday life for me. Accordingly, then was my mood, mood as well as my desire for my husband. A friend I complained of had the same problem and she took Doxipin 50mg. She gave me three tablets so I could try them over the WE. I then took a half tablet on Friday evenings and I was able to fall asleep quite well and sleep through (which joy). Saturday and Sunday the same. On Mondays I am then to my doctor and have told her about this weekend and she has then also written me a pack of 100 Doxipin 25mg. The 25mg lost their effect after over a year, so I took two and got to sleep again. At the next prescription my doctor told me about it and she also approved it. I also tolerate the doxipin without side effects. Because of my crooked spine, I have a lot of heavy and painful muscle tension, so I’ve been taking Tetrazepam (Musaril) for more than 30 years and I still have the best experience with it. Of course, on days when I take the tetrazepam I leave the doxipin off. Even with this drug, I have no side effects. Since I often had a headache as a child, wrote me my former HA Novalgin (Novaminsulvon) against it. To date, and now over 40 years old, I still manage very well and have not had any side effect in the years. MCP drops & amp; I always have MCP suppositories in the house. Should I feel sick, because I accidentally overdosed (and only then I feel sick or I have to spit) then at least I have help for an emergency. Personally, I am very good with all medicines and I am grateful that they are there for me. Without these meds my life would not be so worth living. I can only recommend it to anyone. Now I want to say something to my family doctor and to my pain therapist: They trust me and they know that I would never operate with the drug abuse. Dewegen also often leave the decision to me to dose higher. Both say again and again that I know my body the best and could assess and dewegen leave me a lot of free hand. I am very grateful to them. Thank you for reading this long and I hope I could help you a bit. Biggi

    Doxepin for Dizziness; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Doxepin was given to me for the first time in the clinic (where I was hospitalized for three months). I took her about half an hour before I went to bed. During the first nights, very bad nightmares plagued me from my past, so I woke up sweaty woke. But then it lay down after about 2 weeks. Meanwhile, I take Doxepin for 5Mon.Ich could not say now that I’m better! It is a constant up and down. The only thing I have to determine , is that in this time I have increased by 5kg, which I am very sorry!

    Doxepin for Post-traumatic stress disorder; Anxiety disorders; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Doxepin is still very new for me just 1 week. But I have not noticed any great side effects. I had Venlafaxin before. They are not recommended. They had to stop at once because I was so aggressive and restless. That was the hell 300mg at once, I’m still in Dillemer condition. My head feels like a microwave so it makes noise. I sweat and freeze at the same time. Still very aggressive and sensitive. I’m doing everyone hurt in my environment. The shirring is not even know why. Rivotril, help me if I’m not on withdrawal. They let me sleep a few hours without having bad dreams.

    Side effects: Withdrawal symptoms; Sweat

    Doxepin for Sleep disorders; Depression

    Hello, I have been taking Doxepin for about 5 years, mainly because of my sleeping problems. It is a very good medicine! I take 37.5 mg during the working days in the evening and usually 50 mg on weekends. It improves my sleep significantly and I feel a clear stabilization and lightening of my mood. I think everyone has to try out exactly the right dose for themselves. I advise everyone to start with 25 mg. Although one is pretty dazed for about 2 days, then most side effects disappear by themselves. From 50 mg it has unfortunately negative effects for me the next morning. The thinking is then much slower u. you feel a bit dizzy. Also, I have some tinkling, but that’s good to endure. The most important thing is not to give up immediately due to the tiredness of the first days. Also, one should not always increase the dose by 25 mg. I divide the tablets into quarter pieces u. can only recommend this to make u. thus only ever to increase by about 12.5 mg. I’ve tried a lot of sedative AD before u. must say that this helped me the best (with the fewest side effects!) By the way, it is a very cheap AD, that even the family doctor like to prescribe.

    Doxepin for Sleep disorders; Depression

    hello, doxepin since 2005 every evening 75mg taken. the drug is great! one sleeps quietly and firmly. one takes many kilos, in my case more positive. in the beginning there were problems with the circulation and palpitations during movement. You should only take this medi ca 1-2 before going to sleep. When taking sollteman should definitely eat something because doxepin otherwise shows little effect. I had the feeling the more I had eaten something, the better it worked. but definitely recommended.

    Doxepin for Aggressiveness; Drive disorders; Sleep disorders; Depression

    I’ve been taking mirtazapine for over 4 years, often had intense dreams and did not hear the alarm clock if I got up very early. At some point I had 5 alarm clocks but mostly brought nothing! Then suddenly I always got those dreams of my ex, I was not over him at the time. These dreams came more and more often until I then only dreamed the same and I was at the end, thought the pain tears me and I thought only of these stressful dreams. Then my doctor prescribed me Doxepin, and the dreams have stopped, thank God. But I still did not hear the alarm clock. It was always a pain to get out of bed in the morning, I managed to be punctual at 8 o’clock in 5 years. After falling into a deep hole again, depri with no end, miserable mood, and these aggression I have, avoid crowds at the moment as I am internally freaked out when I am in it, can not endure at the moment when these strangers to me to come close. I would like to box them all away. Then I prescribed my doctor Elontril and I now for 8 days, I noticed that I forget to eat that is bad had many years ne eating disorder, in this case should not actually be taken but I have in the handle when I eat I hope that will go away with the loss of appetite. Now to the best effect, I was the whole week punctually at just before 7 o’clock in the morning out of the houseIt happened that I had a training this week and had to get out so early. After over 5 years, I finally managed to get up so early without any problems, just the hammer that is a huge success for me :)) If I could get rid of this irritability and could be relaxed Elontril would be my miracle, let’s see how it develops ,

    Doxepin for Depression

    Doxepin is an antifungal antidepressant that has a sleep-inducing effect. Sure it works for each person individually, I can only report from my experience. I took Doxepin 50 mg for 6 weeks in the evening, it was supposed to make me sleep-inducing, and it did quite well. I fell asleep quickly, but my dreams were very wild and I had a headache the next morning. In addition, I’ve gained eight kl in this time, even if I’m quite slim, I did not want to take it, because I did not know where the weight now ends. The only good thing was that I fell asleep very quickly, that’s all. My depression did not improve, but I think I should have taken this medicine longer. I dropped it off because of the weight and the headache.

    Doxepin for Psychosis; Depression

    I have been taking Zeldox and Doxepin for about 6 years, after a drug-induced psychosis. Getting started with Zeldox was a bit difficult because I was pretty tired and unfocused in the first few days! After two or three weeks my body got used to the medication relatively quickly. The acute symptoms of psychosis were then as good as gone already after 10 days! I take only 80 mg of Zeldox in the evening and am worried that if I do not take it 2 hours before going to bed I can not sleep. Have forgotten it a few times and then could not sleep the whole night, even if I took it later than at the usual time. However, I will try to sell it in the near future because I want to live completely drug-free, after I have been taking drugs for 6 years now and have not smoked for 5 years. Because every drug has side effects and I believe any continuous use has consequences that the drug manufacturers can not rule out !. The Doxepin I’m already on the slink and I suddenly realize that in the morning I am not so tired. Otherwise, if I did not work, I could stay in bed until 11:00 and daydream! I took Doxepin at 25 mg in the morning and 50 mg in the evening. Currently I am on 25 mg in the evening and in 10 days I hope to be 0. Then it’s the turn of the Zeldox. I will also reduce in 20 mg steps over 4 weeks. I am a little bit afraid that the psychosis could recur, because my doctor persuades me permanently that I should take this a lifetime, but as I said, it is not in my sense to take medications that are not necessarily vital for a lifetime. Nevertheless, I can at least recommend the Zeldox very much. It reliably fixes the symptoms of psychosis and is certainly important for several years after an acute psychotic attack!

    Side effects: Daytime tiredness
