    Promethazine for Depression; Sleep disorders

    At the beginning, I tolerated everything super well, until I noticed that I have gained a great deal in less time, cravings, sweating in small work, heart races. In any case, I slept great and was in the morning again quickly fit, not as Doxepin since I was still totally in the morning next to the track. The kilos started to bother me so much that I only put it off on medication. I stopped taking them hoping to eat less again. Which was true, but I do not sleep at night anymore. It is not my body resting but that is not sleep, you hear everything and that is not a restful sleep. Especially not with two children. I’m afraid to access the drugs again because otherwise I’ll get up like a yeast cake. About 25-30 kilos in the months. That’s why my question also make these drugs dependent? What can you do that is a cycle from which one does not come out so easily.

    Unbearable tiredness, would almost fall asleep standing, could hardly keep me on my feet, just lay in bed, did not get out in the morning. And that at only 25 mg! Muscle twitching all over my body, which in the end I was not able to sleep in spite of somnolence, because I was constantly frightened by the convulsions. The whole body jumped. Weight gain, increased heart stumbling. Not a good substitute.

    No rose without thorns … In 1996 I noticed that Atosil (promethazine) with about 80 pots once helps against anxiety attacks very well. Strong coffee helps against drowsiness. Citalopram is a very potent drug and initially has very strong side effects. Already at 10mg at the beginning I had a strong drop in blood pressure, so I did not dare to go outside for three days. Unfortunately, the smallest strength is 10mg, the first few days you should start with 5mg / day. Even when weaning you should get withdrawal symptoms. First, I got from the cita an aqueous bowel movement (no diarrhea), dizziness and dry mouth. It stayed that way a bit. Also with me an indifference against female stimuli adjusted (libido loss). Furthermore, there were: water retention in the legs (on the other hand, diuretics like torasemide help to gain weight (eat a lot of vegetables and lean quark), my age-related distance vision has increased. I take 40mg cita a day now. , 400mg amisulpride and 20mg torasemide / day. And very strong Kafee …. These are my experiences. This can be different for everyone and you have to try it out. Good luck and courage, you have to go through but it helps. Stefan

    Promethazine for Depression; Sleep disorders

    I am 49 years old, have depris and fibromyalgia. Should take because of both diseases Cymbalta. It looks great, has a lot less pain and I’m not so close to everything anymore. I am much calmer. However, I sleep very badly and often sweat as mad. Always look blurry and can read badly. I do not know if it’s related to the pills or my age. To fall asleep I take Promathezin it helps me very well. My big problem I’ve gained 5 kg, which then makes me Depris. I’m not slim anyway. I do sports 2-3 times a week and watch the food, but nothing happens.

    Promethazine for Borderline; Depression; Sleep disorders

    I got the drug in a clinic instead of my previously taken sleeping pills (crescent moon). In this respect, a somewhat strange replacement. About an hour after taking (2 tablets), I was like switched off. My sentences were getting shorter and shorter and I’m in the bathroom at a snail’s pace, barely enough energy to brush my teeth. I could not imagine a sedative effect until the next day. But for weight gain, about 3 kilos in 10 weeks and slightly bloated tissue. Even more, however, have irritated me the word-finding disorders. Initially, there were reversed initials, e.g. Spleen pencil instead of felt-tip pen – later I was missing more and more sentences. For me, this development was so frightening that I now just crawl this drug on my own and instead take back my at least felt harmless SChlaftabletten.
