    Promethazine for Sleep disorders

    I can not say too much, it’s the second attempt. I had taken Doxepin 10 mg 2 years for anxiety disorders with sleep-disorder, wanted something else since I had 20 kg increased by Doxepin. So I dropped Doxepin from one day to the other and got a Promethazine 25 in the afternoon. There was no talk of sleeping, I felt like my heart was beating, I was restless, panicked. The next day I immediately called my doctor and told her. She then said that I had dropped the doxepin too suddenly. Maybe, you should rather sneak out. She then prescribed me Doxepin again and I took it again for a while and reduced it to a half, so 5 mg. For sleeping I found it very good, only the weight gain. But I still had the Promethazine and started to divide the 25s into four pieces, one of them. I’ll just see how they get me, because as I read here, they are against sleep disorders. Perhaps the restlessness was due to the discontinuation of doxepin. Incidentally, I also take 40-50 drops of tilidine because of a pinched nerve. Whether that will work, I have to try. But I will, if again, then prescribe drops of promethazine, because I can dose the better.

    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.
