Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I take only one half tab, so 12.5mg/night. Stress in my life has been at an all time high, but with this I become drowsy in about 15 minutes and sleep well through the night. No side effects in the a.m. I have never had to take a whole tab. I am an RN

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I needed to have sleep but couldn't achieve that listening to my mom snoring away in our hotel room. I came across this sleep aid in the Walgreen's. I LOVE IT!!! I didn't know that I could purchase this in Walmart for half the price. But I am getting much better sleep and up at 5:30 every morning bright eyed and bushy tailed!!! My mom is already aware that when we go to Daytona this year I will have my pills with me and she can snore as much as she wants!!!!

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: It took me 3 nights to figure out I just needed 1/3 of the pill to sleep all night and not feel sleepy the next day. I absolutely love it. I have restless leg syndrome and ADHD so sleeping at night without meds is impossible. I just hope there are no long term effects from using it every night. Does anybody know if there are?

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: It helps me sleep through the night. I could fall asleep but not stay asleep. One tablets help me sleep 8 hours, which I need. Doesn't work for me if I drink alcohol, esp a couple glasses of wine on a saturday night! I would recommend you try it.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I found this worked for my insomnia better than ambien (the ambien CR though is wonderful). I have to take one and a half tablets to feel a bit sleepy, although sometimes even that doesn't do it, but I haven't ever taken more. If you have serious insomnia and are unresponsive to other medicines then one and a half tabs may work for you. I do have a very hard time getting up in the a.m. after taking this and since I take it nightly I have done some research on the long term effects which of course, aren't good. It works well, but I need to break myself of this habit soon.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: i have had chronic sleeplessness for years and using this gets me over the edge to sleep. 1/2 pill usually does it, whole one makes waking harder. I've tried any number of "sleep inducers" and doxylamine is the ONLY thing to always work.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I use this medication at bedtime for occas. sleeplessness. It is very strong at 25mg., in my case, so I cut the tablet in thirds. This results in my taking about 9mg. dose. It is very effective at helping me sleep all the way through the night. My only complaint is that it can cause sleepiness the next day if take more than 1/3 of a 25mg. tablet or if I use it more than 2 nights in a row. I don't recommend using this product more than 2 or 3 nights a week and to counteract any sleepiness the next day with caffiene (coffee/tea) early on as driving or using machinery could be dangerous. Drinking coffee in the morning usually dispells any drowsiness in my case. I do not normally drink coffee everyday.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: This is the only otc sleep aid that has worked for me. I have used it as needed for over 3 years and have had no major side effects. It is much less effective if I use it every night. I use it for 2 or 3 nights and then take a break for about a week in order for it to remain effective. Diphenhydramine (benadryl) doesnot work for me anymore and it causes much more side side effects (ie morning fog, increased dry mouth and eyes). I also buy the cheap Wal-Mart brand. Hope this is helpful

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I started with just a half of a pill, now I have to take two. Othrwise it wouldn't work at all. I developed such tolerance to this drug in just a few months. DO NOT TAKE IT WITH ALCOHOL!!! It makes you feel awfull next morning! I hope its safe for long term use because out of all sleep aids on the market prescription or over-the-counter this one doesn't make me feel too miserable in the morning and is effective. But if I have to take more than two pills I'll have to quit. It's safe but not that safe.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: This is a cheap drug over the counter drug you can buy at Walmart. It is simply called Sleep Aid Tablet by Equate. I found that one 25mg tablet made me drowsy the next morning, so I break one tablet into thirds and it is perfect for me. It is not addicting as I have gotten off of it many times. I also drink alcohol when I take it and it puts me to sleep and I stay asleep. I like it almost too much. But remember I break the little pill into thirds. This works for me.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I had started a job and I needed to get up by 5:00 Mon - Fri. My trouble is I would go to sleep fine at 9 or 10 p.m then at 2:00 I would wake up and not get to sleep till almost 4:00. Go back to sleep and was so droggy at 5:00. Now at 8:30 p.m I take the sleep aid and by 9:00 I am ready to go to bed and wake up at 5:00. I get up and do 30 min. on the treadmill and ready to leave for work by 7:00 or 8:00 a.m. I feel great, and I only take the sleep-aid Sun - Thru. I take a whole pill 25 mg but I want to try a half a pill instead. If any side effects I should know about please write Lboonud2@aol.com, so far it has been great to get a full nights sleep on hours that I am just not used to working.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I took half a 25mg tablet and slept for 13 hours! Too long! It does make me groggy the next day, but overall I am so happy to have found something that works for me. I was up at 4:30 every morning for the past six years. It also helps my mood - almost instantaneously took away my crankiness and even though I was groggy the next day, I was also happy and mellow. My dreams were really nice on it too. I will try a a smaller dose next time.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I am going thru menopause and sleeping more than 1or2 hrs at a time is almost impossible without help. One effect/benifit is that I don't have to urinate more than once thru the night. I prefer natural healing so would not use it more than 3 xs a week. Give it time to work. I take it 1 or 2 hours before bedtime. At 150 lbs I take 1 at 8:00pm, & get to bed by 9/10:00 to get up by 7am for work. On weekends I could sleep till 11am so I will try 1/2 since others say that works well. I have not noticed next day groggyness once I excersize in the morning. I love this stuff but as I said before, wouldn't use it more than 3 times a week and not 2 nights in a row.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I've been taking medication for sleep on & off for 20 years. THEY ALL CAN BE DANGEROUS & ALL ARE ADDICTING! With that said, I would never suggest anyone taking anything for sleep for more than 3 days UNLESS under the CONSTANT (weekly) care of a seasoned sleep professional that KNOWS that all of these medications have the potential to become addictive and can be dangerous. I've literally been to over 100 doctors and have even worked in the medical field as a Medical Assistant and know 1st and 2nd hand that these medications all are not good for you. Period. Especially if you have an addictive personality, drink alcohol or use street drugs, use herbs or other medications (including other antihistamines), have depression or ANY type of anxiety disorder. I HIGHLY recommened to NEVER get hooked on this! It's a nightmare trying to discontinue! I've gone through withdrawal from numerous medications (including Diphenhydramine, Ambien & Ambien CR, Lunesta, Xanax, Klonopin, ALL the SSRI Antidepressants, Effexor, Cymbalta, etc.) and must say this is no different than any of the meds I received from supposed professionals and colleagues. You WILL have withdrawal if you take this for possibly even as little as 3 days. Everyone's different so it's hard to say where each person's tolerance level stands. But please think about this: THESE MEDICATIONS CAN RUIN & RULE YOUR LIFE. They have mine for years and now I say no more! It's not only destroying me physically, but spiritually, emotionally, mentally, sexually, socially and carerr-wise as I can't hold a job because of the panic and anxiety this garbage causes when trying to get off of it. It's also caused serious distress to a once "picture perfect" marriage. This not only has made me miserable and sick all the time but it has affected everyone around me in some way because I'm a whole different person and can't remember anything. Also the panic attacks are wreaking havoc on out entire family. SO YES THIS IS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE & BAD

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: I have had trouble falling asleep and going back to sleep after waking for many years. I have tried Ambien (only worked for about 4 hrs.), Lunesta, Dalmane & Benadryl and this works the best (can't believe it's OTC). The only problem is the groggy feeling the next day - may try taking half tablet. I have taken nearly every night for several years and am concerned with it being addicting but feel so much better knowing I will sleep, that I ignore that fact.

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: Chronic sleep problems for years and I work shifts. Doctor prescriped Lunesta. That worked well for putting me to sleep, but would often awake after 2-3 hours of sleep and lay awake for 2-3 hours. Felt awful the next day. Doctor recommended trying Benedryl. That and similar medications like Nytol leave me with a terrible hangover. Tried doxylmaine succinate and so far it has solved the problem. I use only a 1/2 pill or less. What are the long term implications of its use?

Doxylamine Succinate for Chronic Trouble Sleeping: This medicine really works! As one with chronic insomnia, I've used every sleep aid over the course of the last 5 years (script or otherwise.) IMO, doxylamine works about as well as Lunesta, not as well as Ambien (but with far fewer side-effects) and better than Rozerem. Another nice thing about doxylamine is that I ALWAYS sleep for a full 8 hours, with no early awakenings. As compared to the prescription sleep meds, doxylamine causes me little or no next-day tiredness. This was my primary complaint with Ambien and Lunesta. Doxylamine is also cheap and ubiquitous. If you or someone you know is suffering from long-term sleep problems, I strongly recommend having a sleep study.
