    First night I took 10m Doxepin slept fine but after that every other night I have been suffering from total insomnia.

    I wondered did anyone else suffer this. I do not want to increase the dose as I will be a total zombie the day after. Maybe I should take it earlier in the evening. I will try and take it earlier tonight and see if it makes any difference.

    The main reason I went on it was because of the terible hives I have been having for months and it has cleared them up but now I am suffering from insomnia. I cant seem to win in this situation. I cure one thing and end up with another.

    I took 25-50mg of Doxepin for bad allergies; took it as needed back in 1999-2000. I later took it for about 7-8 weeks at higher doses as an antidepressant.

    You may want to up the dose and take it earlier in the evening as you suggested. As time went on, my body adjusted to the grogginess during the day.

    best of luck with that!

    For your quick reply to my post on Doxepin.

    I took it earlier last night and it seemed to have done the trick.

    I might ask my doc. for 20m if there is such a tablet.

    It has worked for my hives which were driving me insane.
