    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 Rls; Sleep disorders

    Hello ! I’ve been taking Doxepin 50 mg before sleep and sleeping like a baby for 6 to 8 hours, with some interruptions, but I am so completely satisfied. I started with 25 mg, but I was floating between the worlds! The only thing that bothers me a bit is the dry mouth, but that has something good, because finally I drink more.

    Side effects: Mouth dryness

    Doxepin for Anxiety and panic attacks

    Have used Doxepin differently than prescribed, with only 25 mg instead of 50 mg taken the first time in the evening. That was enough for me, the head was somehow spongy and empty. I have been able to sleep very well for a long time. Before, I woke up at 01:00 or 02:00 clock and have to ring the alarm clock only pondering, five days a week. Unfortunately, I was just as tired the next day, almost the whole day long. Dizziness, sometimes dizziness and a dry mouth could be detected in the morning. However, this has become less and less with time. I am more hungry than usual and have become more balanced. Much is not as important to me now as it was before. I just can not get it right for everyone, which almost made me collapse at work. Because I really suffered, when I did not get something done, or just did not answer the phone, I always had a guilty conscience. Constant fear to forget something or to make wrong, was my previous daily routine. Now after the 50 call until noon, I let it ring once synonymous and make important to the end. It is done one by one and sometimes “no” said to outrageous customers who want to have done everything immediately and best yesterday. For information I am harassed after work hours and also on the weekend of customers, which today is 24 hours a day, seven days a week service normal. Such customers do not bother me at the moment, before they almost ruined my head. The dose has since been increased to 50 mg in the evening and 25 mg in the morning. At the moment, this works quite well, the tiredness in the morning is less and I can still sleep very well. The dose in the morning, was introduced by me independently, because I was very restless, sometimes very easily irritated and also became aggressive. So far it’s ok, let’s see what else is coming. The hoped-for effect of mood enhancement has not yet occurred, I would also wish a little more drive. Then everything would be great. I’m a bit scared of the enormous weight gain, which is often stated here. Can not report anything, except increased hunger. Overall, more positive than negative changes are perceived by me.

    Doxepin for Sleep disorders

    For me, the drug does not work at all. Oh, yes: Acting it does, somehow: in the evening in bed hot flash with subsequent adrenaline shower and the insurmountable compulsion to just get up again; burning legs with water retention; Binge eating; Restlessness and irritability; Mouth-Sahara; joint pain; Howling cramps and attacks of aggression. Sleep-inducing effect = zero (although my psychologist said that would even upset an elephant). In my view, not suitable for me, so I will bring this spectrum of action in a week with my psychologist.

    Doxepin for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    Doxepin helped me extremely well. First, I took it for chronic abdominal pain after peritoneal plastic surgery including neurotonia. Before that I was so agitated by the constant pain that my face even looked distorted and tense. My doctor prescribed me aponal (doxepin). A few days later, my boss asked what happened to me, I’m so happy, u asked if I’m freshly in love. Nothing like that, but finally finally slept properly and no more stress in my head. After a few months, I was able to sell it. However, three years later I had an extremely traumatic experience, complete burn-out and severe virus infection. Since then daily nerve pain in the head u behind the face. Take Oxygesic 160mg on the day and 150mg doxepin in the evening. Works slackoerdernd without groggy. Also, the sleep is deeper. Striking are the many, intense, colorful dreams, which are almost 100% positive, it’s like being in the cinema at night. On Doxepin fits the book title: The stuff that dreams are made of. I depend on Doxepin, I know. Without Doxepin I lie awake at night and am struggling. Stress. One day I will make the jump.

    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 Pain (chronic)

    I got it 2 weeks as an infusion (25 / 50mg). The strongest side effect was definitely the tiredness !! … I slept deep and tight shortly after the infusion for up to four hours.Much dreamed, dry mouth, circulatory disorder and heart racing or the feeling as if the heart beating irregularly or a jump !? At times, I had the feeling that I was completely beside me. Easy disoriented. Since 6 days I take now the tablets. (75mg). I had recommended in the morning half (25mg) and in the evening a whole (50mg). But I did not get along well. Was very tired in the morning and barely got high. When I was a bit awake, I had to take half the tablet again and then became tired again, cold hands and feet, circulation. Take half now in the early afternoon … still get up in the morning, but when I’m awake, it works. The tablet in the evening at the beginning after 1 hour completely undressed … extremely tired, extremely restless legs and a disgusting dry mouth. That has settled after 3-4 days but then 🙂 Have so far, unfortunately, already gained 3 kilos … just have constantly animal appetite.Esse much more than normal. Meanwhile, the side effects are really only very low … the constant hunger is annoying and the fact that the pain does not change at all and my mental state is not really better is my biggest problem. Monday are 3 weeks around … I really hope that then POSITIVE things get going 😉

    Doxepin for Depression

    Well, the Lorazepam helps with great, even during the day in acute situations. I have the Expides, these are small leaves, which melt when swallowed within seconds under the tongue. I think that’s handy when you’re out and about when you do not have water to take the tablet. It also falls e.g. at school, because the others do not even notice. I take up to 5 mg / day, so 2 orodispersible tablets, usually in the evening together with the Doxepin. Of the doxepin I currently take 150 mg, about 2 hours before going to bed. Mostly together with the Tavor. Doxepin takes a bit longer to work, so the combination of the two meds is just perfect. Thanks to the medis, I am now also psychologically more stable, do not worry so much about all kinds of unimportant things. I have already tried many pfalnzliche things from the pharmacy. Everything is very expensive, and these girls are not even minimal at all. In any case, I will continue to take the two medications in this combination first. Even if now some say, yes, great dependence on Lorazepam, etc. I prefer to take my meds continue regularly, instead of immediately again in psychiatry to land, if it comes to a relapse, by discontinuation. I really do not want to experience that 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.

    Doxepin for Borderline; Depression

    I used to take Doxepin 100mg in the evening, so I was finally able to sleep again, but was tired and impotent the next day. Although I gained three kilos, which was quite desirable because I also suffered from an eating disorder, the depression could only be moderated a little. But there was no more suicide attempt. Dry mouth. Since I additionally take pregabalin (because of an accident, from it the damage of the nerves on the foot), the side effects are intensified. After taking drunkenness and strong fatigue, as well as ings. 12 kilos of weight gain. Dry mouth, but word finding problems have only been recorded since taking Pregabalin.
