    the doctor has prescribed Doxepin 10mg as a sleep aid and muscle relaxant. Has anyone used them and if so did they help?

    thanks,
    hugs

    Doxepin is one of the older tri-cyclic antidepressants. It is often used in FM to help with sleep. I take a higher dose but I find it does help with sleep. I don't find that it gives me a hangover.

    I hope that helps.

    thanks for your reply. This is the third med my doctor has put me on. He tried me with Cesamet, but had to stop it because of the awful side affects. Then the flexeril didn't help me at all. Hopefully this new med will help.

    have a nice weekend,
    hugs

    I don't have any experience with it so I can't pass anything helpful on to you. I just wanted to wish you luck in finding relief ... hope it helps you.

    Take care,
