I am taking 1-2 25mg capsules every night for sleep. Since Doxepin is also an antidepresent/ anxiety med, will this mean I will have those benefits too? Or is that only if I take it while awake? I am clinically depressed. My doctor already has me on celexa and atarax so I'm just wondering if doxepin will also benefit me for more than just sleep
I just atarted taking doxepin as an anti depressent and while doing so, I have cut my trazodone down to 125mg at night as opposed to 175mg. I also take 1.5mg of xanax at night for sleep anxiety, 4 mg of haloperidol and 25mg of doxepin. The goal is to work as an anti depressent titrating upwards while decreasing the other dosage levels of my sleep time medication. I have found it to make me very drowsy during the day as I take it at bedtime. Also, I have just started with a headache so I have emailed my doctor. I dont want any accidental overdoses. It also is causing me to have some very strange and vivid dreams.
