> I must admit I didn't stay on either of them long at all. I ditched the remeron after reading up and finding it was a weight-gainer. The doxepin was given to me as a sleep aid-- he told me to take 150 mg. I tried 50 mg, got the most awful sick knocked-out feeling from it, like I had to lie down at once or I was going to pass out. Then the next morning woke with a hangover and a HUGE food craving. I'm normally not hungry til a couple hours after waking. The hangover lasted all day long. I may have only tried that one the one time. He had also told me it was not a tricyclic, but it is. I would not have even used it if I'd known. That was probably my most dramatically unpleasant med experience.

10mg would be a good starting place for Doxepin, used for depression you still wouldn't start at 150mg or even 50mg. :) Did Remeron cause hunger? Weight gain when taking TCA's or Remeron is caused by food cravings. Fortuneately I have been lucky not to get them.

Cheers,
Panda.
