    I was prescribed 100 mg of Doxepin for my problem with staying asleep. I had been unable to sleep ever since my doctor prescribed Celexa for depression (about 1 month ago). Once I took Doxepin, I had no problem falling asleep or staying asleep. The first couple of days I was dizzy, extremely tired and groggy; but those side effects improved with time. I am happy to report that I am sleeping normal ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this medication for 2 months now at 100mg per day. I use it for chronic utecaria and angioderma. I take it with 75mg of benadryl everynight. I sleep great, but I am very tired in the morning. I'm always hungry. My symptoms are ALOT better, but not gone.

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 ... Show Full Comment
