I've been on 10mg @ bedtime for a week, my energy is increasing each day .My depression is alot better , it slowly puts mE to sleep(UNLIKE OTHER MED THAT TOTALLY JUST ZONKED ME OUT) .I go back to the DOC in about a week 5/17 , he'll probably increase to 20 mg ..Only side effects i've had are bloating and gas .

My first anti-depressant and would not had made it my senior year in college and working 40 hours a week without it. It seems people with SA are the last to get help because of it's nature. I finally had to as I was unable to sleep and then would worry about not sleeping. It fixed that and helped with depression. I'd give it about 30% for helping my SA. It caused me to be very sun sensitive and would have a dry mouth and my head would buzz in the morning, but normally wore off by noon. I was up to 120mg.

Any one has tried this stuff?

I took .5ml of Doxepin in a successful attempt to help with sleep. The only problem is I'm so groggy and out of it today. I'll reduce my dose tonight. I'm a zombie. I'm falling down a spiral...

I take 20mg of doxepin plus 100mg trazadone to sleep. It works ok, I eventually fall asleep.

I hear that Doxepin is the most Anxiolytic of all Trycyclic antidepressants, would any of you users agree with that statement?
I take Imipramine 25mg x 3 daily and the trycyclics have been the most effective at combating my Panic disorder/ Social Anxiety disorder.

I sometimes take 50mg of Doxepin for insomnia (I tend to rotate sleep meds periodically to avoid tolerance). Overall I like it, less side effects than Remeron or Seroquel, I'm surprised it's not used more often to treat insomnia.

Isnt Sinequan a really bad med because of all the side effects it has? I sometimes wonder if it causes serious life threatening reactions..:um

Doxepin sounds like an interesting medication.
