Doxepin for Other: I am taking this at night to help me with insomnia associated with depression and anxiety..I take prozac during the day and doxepin at night about two hours before i want to go to sleep. It knocks me out!!! I have to go to bed or I would fall asleep in the hallway on the way! I have not had any nightmares on this which I tend to do with new meds so that is a good thing. I like it so far..doing what is is supposed to do for me.

Doxepin for Insomnia: Aug., 2010: I've been given an Rx for 25 - 100mg in 25mg. caps. Varying within this range did not help my insomnia (have severe difficulty going to sleep). From manufacturer's info and patient comments, LOW doses seem to be the key for helping sleep. High doeses are for anxiety. A max. of 6 mg. should be used for insomnia. Typical seems to be 2 - 4 mg. with one patient reporting 1 mg. or less worked. For such low doses, it may be necessary to open a 10mg. capsule and carefully divide the contents into equal, smaller doeses. The drug may be available as a liquid under another name.

Doxepin for Other: I was prescribed doxepin for insomia. I have taken 3 other prescribed meds for insomia and did not work. I have been taking doxepin for 4 days now. The 1st day after taking the 1st dose, I was real shakey, off balanced, really sleepy, dizzy, light headed, thirsty and hungry! I'm still real hungry and I'm eating a lot. I sleep about 4-5 hours now (was 2-3) and real drowsey in the mornings. I'm going to give the drug more time to work but may need to come off doxepin if I can not get my hunger under control.

Doxepin for Other: Prescribed for severe food alergies. I have not taken the dosage reccomended and that is probably why I am having severe alergic reactions to most foods. Problem is when I do take it and the next I am like a zombie and it usualy takes 8-16 hours to work out of my system. I need to be coherent at work so I do not take it regularly only when I am very sick and am not going to work or drive. How long did it take for your body to stop feeling the drowsiness.I take the 25MG. By the way it works. Thanks

Doxepin for Other: My VA doctors prescribed this medication for me to help me sleep. I have to say it did a great job of that. When I sleep I am totally out. Might say "dead to the world". It has such a tranquilizing affect that I was hurt terribly and did'nt even know it. I also read the list of side effects just now and realized that I had 90% of them. In short, this drug has slowly poisoned me and I was not even aware of it, neither were the doctors that kept me taking it. My advise to all is DONT TAKE IT!!!!! If you cant sleep, find a different way to relax and wind down. These pills will in fact make you take a dirt nap. S. Williams
