I have fibromyalgia and found that Doxepin helped extremely well with my back pain as well as sleep at the dose of 30 mg(10 mg>>30 mg over a week). THe first few days were difficult with anti-cholinergic (sp?) side effects but after a couple of months they were totally gone. The problem for me was increased depression and weight gain on it. Depakote (Epival)with Zoloft also helped quite a bit with back pain and also headaches with no sidee effects. Eventually I felt unmotivated on it.

> I do have a peripheral sensory neuropathy in my lower legs. I read of "treating" pain with TCAs (esp. amitryptiline, trimipramine, doxepine) and Antiepileptics (esp. Gabapentin, Carbamazepine and Oxcarbazepine). I am very sensitive to side effects (sedation, dizziness) so I have problems to bear "normal" doses considered to be helpful. Are there TCAs lacking the anticholinergic and antihistaminic side effects to treat neuropathic pain ? Other ADs like SSRIs doesnt seem to work for pain ?! Do you have experiences or considerations ? I am on Moclobemide (Aurorix) for several weeks (in diff. doses) and it doesnt seem to do any trick for my pain !
