      My dr just prescribed it with ambien to help sleep. Been dealing with a flair up and was curious if anyone had side from it like increased tinnitus?

      After 3 years of tinnitus found ambien caused it. Stopped ambien and it got better. After not taking ambien for 6 months took half a pill and immediately got ear pressure and tinnitus. Waiting for it to go away and threw away all my ambien

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Doxepin is a tricyclic that might have some mild sleep inducing properties due to its affinity for the histamine receptors, ambien is a straight up Z drug for knocking you out.

      I've been taking Ambien for years. I want to try and get off it.
      I have a prescription for Doxepin. I'm worried I will not be able sleep.
      Has anyone used Doxepin and how much did you take?
