    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 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 Unrest

    With Doxepin I have increased extremely, but the desired effect was missing. At a daily dose of 150mg, all the proportions have been tickled out and this has not even been recognized by psychiatrists. I deducted Doxepin single-handedly. I got tavor to doxepin in the amount of 2.5mg / day and even that astonishingly made me run straight and did not calm down in the least.

    Dosage: 10mg, 1 tablet at night. Has good against my Ein u. Sleep-through disorders helped. I have the experience with the dreams described here, despite the minimum dosage of 1 tablet at bedtime, I have also made. In addition, this drug should also reduce migraine attacks, which I can also confirm.

    Initially 3 times 25 mg were not crept in, but administered overnight. The first 14 days I had no side effects, with it was getting better. The panic attacks were less and my mood improved. Unfortunately, then not insignificant side effects occurred, such as: dizziness, low blood pressure, nausea, and weakness. This was so extreme by the day that my feet felt like lead and I had the feeling of falling over during any physical activity. I reduced my dose to half an hour at midday and 25 minutes and a quarter in the evening. The weakness was reduced significantly, my circulatory problems were better. At this dosage, I take Doxepin now about 3 months, but still cause me side effects. Firstly, I have increased considerably, about 5 kilos and I have to eat controlled, otherwise it would probably be more. In addition, I have more often dizziness and nausea, to the point of nausea. Especially bad is the most in the phase of my period.

    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 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 Depression

    Hello, dear sufferer I have taken the drug in tablet form Doxepin for a long time, at the beginning it had caused a tremendous improvement in my mental state. I took 50 mg half an hour before going to bed, could sleep well, also did not always have the bad feelings and thoughts! But what struck me was my enormous weight gain and my deteriorated vision. Also circulatory problems and tachycardia, as well as dizziness I could watch with me. I do not necessarily want to advise against this drug, but it would be more helpful to have a conversation with a trained psychologist and to work out a balanced daily routine with stress and rest periods. But that costs … I wish you all a speedy recovery!

    I have been taking Doxipin for a year and am very satisfied with its effectiveness. The creep phase was twofold, my anxiety disorder was actually gone immediately, but the depression got worse. After 6 weeks, in consultation with my psychiatrist, I increased the dose from 50 mg to 75 mg and since then I have been getting better every day. I’m very glad that after an Odysee of hospital stays and psychotherapies I finally found a way to live a normal life again and feel comfortable. Since I take the slight side effects (weight gain, limited sexuality and now and then a slight tinnitus) very much in purchase.

    Doxepin for Depression

    I took it for depression / anxiety disorder in the dosage of 100 mg. It hardly got me tired, the tension remained almost as usual. No noticeable difference to not taking. It used to work very well, but it has no use at the moment.
