At first my doctor had me on Trazadone for sleep. That left a horrible taste in my mouth every morning. So he then had me start on Doxepin. For me it really has not helped. I asked the doctor to stop prescribing it for me around 6 months ago. I still have most of the pills left.

The last time I took one was a huge mistake, because I took it the same time as I took my pain medicine in the evening. I recommend never taking pain medication and Doxepin at the same time. Eat a little something inbetween the pain medication and later take the Doxepin.

Even though Doxepin does not work for me, it still may work for you.

Took one last night, but still had a rough time sleeping. This morning and most of the day I feel groggy. Don't know if it was the doxepin or just another bad night. Will see what happens tonight and tomorrow.
