I’ve been on Dosulepin 75mgs for about 25 years. It was a game changer for me in the beginning. I am an alcoholic and I hade been clean and sober for about 5 years but feeling very depressed. I saw a psychiatrist who diagnosed me as suffering from clinical depression. I was prescribed Dosulepin 75 msg and I have been on them ever since. They allowed me to work, buy a house, live with my partner etc. All the normal things that I couldn’t do. I’m 61 now and retired and am in the process of tapering off. The drawback of the dosulepin for me was excessive tiredness, aches and pains and even suicidal thoughts. These didn’t occur until about 5 years ago. Anyway, I’ve gone from 3x25 msg per night to 3 one night, 2 the next then 2 every night. So far so good. Then I dropped to 2 one night and one the next and it got really hard , hence my post. My sleeping is all over the place. Once I wake , I can’t get back to sleep even if I’ve only had 3 or 4 hours. My anxiety levels are up but most worryingly my mood is low. I’m worried that my depression is returning. I’ve been on this lower dose now for 3 and a half weeks. I would have thought that I should have evened out by now. Anyone with any experience/thoughts on the matter ?
