> I've been on doxepin before. It left a bacterial, coated tongue taste in my mouth and did nothing for the social phobia. It DID work to put me to sleep -- and then kept on working for 3 more days! Talk about a hangover.
> I hate being sedated all day. I want something that will be in and out of my system quickly.
> Trazodone and Diphenhydramine have the exact same effect on me as doxepin. I'd rather have sleep problems than take any of those drugs.

What doseage & for how long were you taking Doxepin & Trazodone? It takes a month to get use to Remeron. The antihistamine knockout effects fades away, but sleep still comes very easily when you want it. You can use Benzos for sleep only if the benzos are treating anxiety. The sedative effect goes away very rapidly, but for most people the anxiolytic effects stays. If your sleeplessness is purely from anxiety then benzos will relieve that anxiety & allow you to sleep naturally. If your sleeplessness is due to an over active mind, then beenzos can only be used for a few days.
