I see a lots of negative comments on Drugs.com about Silenor as soon this link was posted on Yahoo messages board. I don't think any comment posted after Feb 2, 2011 reflects truth about Silenor.
There are Investors who wants this drug to fail for personal reasons because there is a lots of Money on stake.
Drugs.com should implement some kind of control. Thanks.
OK, is this a conspiracy?
Benadryl works better than Silenor.
Silenor is a low-dose (1 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg) oral tablet formulation of doxepin hydrochloride that is patent protected for use in insomnia. Doxepin has been prescribed for more than 35 years for the treatment of depression and anxiety at dosages typically ranging from 75 mg to 300 mg per day. At these higher doses used for these indications, doxepin is known to have a range of undesirable side effects, including anticholinergic and next-day residual effects. However, based upon the controlled clinical trials of Silenor completed by Somaxon, the company believes that Silenor will be well tolerated by patients.
See the below link for many positive reviews from patients using Silenor.
Thank you everyone for the information about Silenor. I have not had any success with other medications for my Insomnia due to the awful side effects. I had been on Doxepin a long time ago, early 80's, but I also remember that this drug also had uncomfortable side effects. I was not on it very long. I am not aware of the conflicts going on with Silenor. I am more interested in the people's opinion who have taken the drug. I have had a difficult time finding the right treatment for my Insomnia. The information that the members of Drugs.com provide has been very helpful. What a bunch of nice people! Thank you all! Sweetie Pie
