    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 Alcohol addiction; Investigated; Depression

    It’s strange, but was :)) For months, I drink one to two bottles of wine a day and consume about 5-10g of cocaine a week. For two days I have with baclofen (100mg) a day no more request. Neither after cocaine nor after alcohol. Sexual desire is severely limited, but not so bad. I feel a bit dizzy, my muscles are limp, my ability to concentrate leaves something to be desired, the circulation is not very stable … all in all, bearable. The voice control is in no way limited, the eyes are clear. I’m a bit fidgety, and I have strong urge to move, especially the legs are constantly bobbing. Doxipin does not help against cocaine and alcohol addiction. She is more paralyzing and debilitating and sometimes you are just too tired to call your dealer. When I feel a strong craving for cocaine, I took 100mg of doxipin and after half an hour, I did not want to move. But does not always help especially if the pressure is too high. – On the other hand, baclofen is a real panacea, because the pressure disappears … I can look to the future with confidence again. Baclofen is absolutely recommended. The urge for addictive substances is no longer present.

    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 Sleep disorders; Depression

    Citalopram: I got the drug prescribed by my psychologist because of anxiety and panic attacks and depression. In the beginning I had many symptoms. Low blood pressure with dizziness, diarrhea, fatigue without end, loss of appetite, headache, trembling, increased anxiety, no desire for sex and sweats. I immediately went to the psychologist and told her about it. She had complete understanding and gave me a sedative injection (stopped for about 2 weeks). After about 1 week, all symptoms were gone, except for the low blood pressure. But that’s ok. What I have from time to time in the morning is a shiver. Take Citalopram rather evening. before going to bed. Since I had to fight with the dizziness at the beginning and so did not hear much about it. I realized correctly how it got better after about 2 weeks and now, after 4 weeks, everything works fine again. Doxepin: I also got from the psychologist. because I could not sleep at night because of my sweats. She first recommended to start with 2 or 3 tablets. But I first get one with. Where then cih noticed that it was enough. She also said she should take between 18 and 19 o’clock. What I did in the beginning, but then I got so tired (between 8pm and 9pm) that I decided to take it around 8pm. I had no side effects.

    In my opinion Doxepin is one of the best AD`s although it is an old AD, it can hardly be surpassed (with the exception of the tetracyclic AD Mirtatzapin which is also excellent and is gentle on the circulation). It helps very well to help you fall asleep, with nervousness and anxiety disorders it is also suitable as a (light) withdrawal pill. I myself use it for nervous insomnia when needed. To the negative properties / side effects that I noticed: – the AD has an effect on an empty stomach very slowly, only 1-2 hours. On the other hand, if you eat something very sweet and fat, it will be particularly quick (about 30 minutes), so maybe the weight gain that bothers most consumers. If it works then additional cravings for edible (which you can ignore with time, however!) Best if you notice that you are tired in bed and not to the fridge) – the next is the pulse increase which starts when it works , But that does not take long. I can deal with it very well and find it meanwhile no longer unpleasant. – Also disturbing is the dry mouth. You have a strong need for drinking but that does not hurt. Drinking is well known to be good and healthy. – if the AD works and you get tired then you also have the current loss of libido, but who wants to when he is totally tired? For me, this side effect is understandable and not a big problem. – really annoying can the nightmares werden.Die are not always but quite often. But even here I have to say, rather sleep through and bad dreams than nervously lie awake! In the morning, the whole thing is not so bad (I think) were just dreams and the reality takes place while awake. In general, Doxepin is a top medication that makes you feel more balanced and can really recommend it! Greeting Marit

    Doxepin for Sleep disorders; Depression

    From Cipralex, I have gained just under 20 pounds within a week, then outgrown. Meanwhile hot hunger, but no improvement in depression, let alone sleeping. No appreciable improvement in the general condition. Zopiclone was great, at first very high doses, so I could finally sleep. At first I was tired during the day, but with time it went also times. However, quite dependent. Side effect: Libido loss. When sneaking out came again more depression. The Doxepin was doing similarly well. Initially 2 pieces taken in the evening and within about an hour I finally slept. After about 3 weeks of continuous use, unfortunately, this positive effect is lost. Side effect: thirst, fatigue, sluggishness, lack of concentration. a week’s sleep lab did not give any real information. After 2 hours I’m awake again 🙁

    Doxepin for High blood pressure; Polytoxicomania; Alcohol addiction; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Dose increase (initially 50mg, now 300mg Doxepin in the evening) The sleep-inducing side effect is always more. Cravings attacks, dry mouth, inner emptiness, irritability during the day no highs and no lows more … consistent \ concrete head \ speak cool feelings, reduced sex drive. Only Cipramil was good for a while, then, as every year, the winter depression came. The two meds together allow me to work \ normal \ but I will settle doxepin as soon as I can. Outsiders observe slower action with me. I often feel like being remotely controlled. Alcohol mixed consumption, I advise in any case, makes a comatose intoxication so necessarily Abstinent while taking Doxepin stay. I do not notice any interaction with Beloc Zoc.
