    I started Doxepin for insomnia. I've been taking it for almost 3 months. I agree with other reviews about being very groggy. I also, have developed eye pain and severe neck pain. I don't take any other meds, so it must be from the Doxepin. I'm gonna stop taking it and go back to my doctor.

    I have had trouble falling asleep for years. Tired of taking addictive meds. 6 mg of this med and I was asleep in an hour and woke up feeling refreshed after 8 hours of sleep. Finally, something safe that works for me!

    New to Doxepin but have found it totally ineffective. I don't sleep and other popular sleeping pills have stopped working for me. Also, I have started to have hallucinations when I do fall asleep. Not sure if there's a connection but never had that problem before.
