James here....

By far doxepin is the most sedating TCA.
For sleep start with 25 mgs. The first few days will be groggy but this generally passes. Increase dose as needed to give restful sleep.

The question you need to answer is "do you feel rested thruout the day" If the answer is no then the amount and/or quality of sleep needs to change.
