> Kara, hi. How are you managing the anticholinergic effects of Doxepin? Are they wearing off? Is the same dose still sedating enough to help with sleep?


Hi Sarah,

The side effects are pretty mild right now but I'm only on 25 mg. I still sleep incredibly well.

In spite of all the difficulties I had with tricyclics (or tetracyclics), I still think they are far superior to the current AD's for unipolar depression.


I'm already fighting the weight gain. I'm not used to watching it as the last few months I've been trying keep the weight on. When I was much younger I managed to lose weight while taking doxepin but I was very motivated at the time. The TCAs are not ideal but they definitely have their benefits.
