Doxepin was a curiousity of mine awhile ago...it has a very good profile for anxiety patients and a good sleep response but I rarely run across anyone who has experience with it. Plus dr can't handle the idea of tca + maoi...it makes him shiver in his knickers (what the hell was that...it just came out lol). I'm about to hit him again with another debate over sleep aids...zyprexa will be involved again in the discussion and i'm thinking tca like doxepin (ideally) or amitrip (as ive used for sleep in past). Hope it goes well....myco is losing patience and has to hold back hand from wanting to strangle lil medical educated man *grunt grunt*
> I didn't see any mention of doxepin, maybe not usable with MAOIs. At low dosage it's pretty good for slllleeeeeeeeppppppppppppppzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . .
> Huh? . . Oh yeh, and using Remeron for sleep is OK, but you have to remember that it's an AD and if you discontinue taking after using it for many days/weeks, it can cause a minor crash, as it did with me a couple of times.
