    Doxepin for Aggressiveness; Borderline; Sleep disorders

    Taking Doxepin for 14 days now. Daily dose 150 mg. Initial side effects such as severe drowsiness, delirium and mental confusion. However, was certainly at a too high dosage. Doxepin got against my strong restlessness and tension conditions in the context of a borderline disorder and after taking a variety of drugs, I am currently very satisfied. I take the medicine 3 times a day and am now well through the day. So the effect is very good – so good that inexperienced patients may want to keep their hands off it, because it really does rejuvenate. But can, as above, also be at the height of the dosage. – Now to Promethazine (also known as Atosil): causes the same as above, ingestion by drop or high tablet presentation more complicated; Effect top; Side effects but not to be underestimated. Promethazine unfolds after taking 30 drops its effect on me only after 3-4 hours, while Doxepin strikes already after 1 hour. The latter is longer lasting and gentler; Promethazine is more effective in one stroke and is not noticeable after a short time (apart from the side effects such as dullness and muscle relaxation). I would therefore recommend Promethazine only as a sleep aid, while Doxepin can be well incorporated into everyday life.

    Hello. I took Doxepin a few years ago for a long time. At that time I found out that the drops quickly led to addiction and I could not leave the house without at least tasting the bitter taste … I got it from my doctor again, he said I should To start slowly (my body responds very well to medication), so I took 10 drops, after a few days there were strong states of confusion (I was in bed and did not remember why I have arms and legs …) I have she dropped off immediately and my condition improved quickly. Explanation of my doctor: There were overdose symptoms … For a long time I have left the fingers of it and started about 2 weeks ago … With 3 drops, then after one / two days with 4 drops, etc. Now I’m at 5 Drops and my emotions go through with me! I have increased anxiety, dizziness, confusion, tiredness … I will not take her, that’s it … off in the trash with it! Conclusion: Without this drug I was a lot better!

    Doxepin for Depression

    Although the dose was only 10mg in the evening, there were many unwanted effects. Very sedating for the first few days (1.5-2 hours after ingestion). Tachycardia, dizziness and balance problems, mild confusion, strong appetite increase, nightmares, inflammatory sensation in the skin (similar to a sunburn), severe dry mouth and nasal mucosa. Some side effects have subsided after the first few days. However, the intake was not more pleasant. The in my case wanted, sleep inducing side effect also disappeared already after 6 days. In the rest of the intake, an unbearable inner turmoil and inner dryness increased with concomitantly increasing external listlessness and slackness. There were also very strong mood swings. In addition, I felt absent, standing next to myself. The absent impression and the zombie movements were also observed by outsiders. After weaning / fast weaning, all side effects have completely resolved within 2-3 days of the last weaning dose.
