Thanks. (I've taken doxepin myself and it worked really well for anxiety and insomnia. It totally healed my panic disorder as well.)

What about maprotiline for an elderly person? It's got a slightly higher chance of causing seizures but I'm not really worried about that - particularly at the low dosages that my mother would take it.
