Can I take 3 25mg doxylamine succinate?
So it would be 75mg all together im also 16 but I need to be up in a couple hours and I'm wide awake right now I've taken 25mg before and it didn't even make me tired so can I take 75mg and be ok? Asked by Nelia Carros 4 months ago.

the max does should be 50 Mg. 75 mg wouldn't hurt you but it wouldn't help either...Doxylamine succinate is'nt the kind of drug that gets stronger as you go up with dosage, it's an antihystamine and once you get up to the max it just hovers...it doesn't do anything more for you.....it's kinda like filling up a cup and trying to put more in...it just hovers and fills up your bladder and then you end up peein it out..so just take the max dose and don't go over that...trust me, it's overkill and a waste of doxylamine.

Does doxylamine succinate alter your sleep architecture (the relative amts. of REM and non-REM)?
Asked by Nakia Leiser 4 months ago.

Doxylamine can decrease time spent in REM and there can be a small reduction of sleep stage N3. Over all the effects are fairly minimal, typically any NREM effects are inconsequential and the disruption with REM is mild. If you are or are considering taking doxylamine I certainly recommend you see your doctor and use a prescription medication. Doxylamine tends to cause significant "hangover" effects and there are not a lot studies showing significant efficacy and there is no evidence it is effective long term. But it is a better option than diphenhydramine. Answered by Doria Sockwell 4 months ago.


How dangerous is combining doxylamine-succinate with alcohol? ?
I am chemically dependent on alcohol, but I still have problems sleeping (despite or because of...not ready to address that yet) ... The warning on the box says to avoid alcohol, but I am not willing to do that yet. Am I risking death, serious problems or just severe stress on my body? Asked by Lucia Barufaldi 4 months ago.

You are risking death. Doxylamine Succinate is the most powerful over-the-counter, short acting antihistamine available. During the clinical trials, it was discovered that doxylamine-succinate is an even more potent sedative that phenobarbital (a powerful prescription sedative and also a barbiturate). It is a CNS depressant, which means it slows your body down. Alcohol is also a CNS depressant. Anything from heart to lung failure could happen if you do this. -edit- please don't take the chance. i have seen CRAZY things happen to people who combine over-the-counter antihistamines w/alcohol.

Doxylamine Succinate And Alcohol Answered by Raguel Sylla 4 months ago.

I can say by experience that Benadryl , which is another anti-histamine if drinking moderately 2 beers etc will not cause any medical emergencies in itself. The consumers health is of great importance when deciding upon any medication or alcohol. I am very healthy and have been taking 3 advil pm a night with a 25 oz can of beer for 10 years because of sleeplessness caused from hands burning and tingling when sleeping. I am an male nurse and benadryl is not addictive and doxylamine is non addictive. Answered by Chelsea Feliberty 4 months ago.

Not correct. Doxylamine is safe with alcohol for sleep. Anti-histamines do NOT cause CNS respiratory depression, unlike virtually every other class of sleep agents....barbituates, ambien, valium, etc.... so in fact it's the safest choise Answered by Eartha Brause 4 months ago.

Does doxylamine succinate (Unisom) affect the liver?
Asked by Nydia Reinecke 4 months ago.

That depends on what you mean. Many drugs are processed by the liver before your body can get rid of them. Doxylamine certainly is processed by your liver to some degree (but less so than many other drugs). If you're asking if you should be concerned about liver damage, my answer is no. I am aware of no reports of of liver toxicity, and it's a very old drug. While anything is possible in this world, it is certainly more likely that you will be hit by lightning or fall down your stairs, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's more important to keep in mind that doxylamine, like many antihistamines, can upset your balance, impair your reaction times, and impair your thinking ability.

Can i take Lexapro and Doxylamine Succinate?
i called a pharmacy but the guy sounded like he had no clue what i was talking about asked how to spell the medications and told me no interactions.. but i wanna be sure!! (the doxylamine succinate is a sleeping pill by the way!) Asked by Jacqulyn Fini 4 months ago.

Doxylamine is an antihistamine like benadryl, it's the stuff in nyqiul or unisom. Yeah you'll be fine it doesn't have any reactions, just don't drink alcohol on it. Answered by Jacelyn Swansbrough 4 months ago.

I believe lexapro is to be taken in the morning so it would be safe to take a sleeping pill in the evening. but personally i wouldn't take the sleeping pill if you don't take lexapro in the am Answered by Cari Mansouri 4 months ago.


How many milligrams of doxylamine succinate would it take to overdose?
Those are my sleeping pills and I was just wondering because they make me hallucinate. I take 75-100 mg. Asked by Kasie Suskay 4 months ago.

Taking more than your doctor prescribes is an overdose--however, if you are sensitive to it, you may require a much lower dose than what your doctor prescribes. Some people do have unusual reactions to medications and it sounds like you're having one to doxylamine succinate. Please stop taking it until you've discussed these hallucinations with your doctor! EDIT: It sounds like he might have you on a high dose: "Typical preparations that contain doxylamine range from 6.25 mg to 50 mg. Symptoms of overdose may include dry mouth, dilated pupils, insomnia, night terrors, euphoria, hallucinations, seizures, rhabdomyolysis, and death. Fatalities have been reported from doxylamine overdose. These have been characterized by coma, tonic-clonic seizures and cardiorespiratory arrest." Answered by Shantay Bormuth 4 months ago.

Doxylamine Overdose Answered by Britt Fredieu 4 months ago.

first of all, why would you take your adderall when your not supposed to? thats the question. now, here is a prime example of why i do not believe in this scenerio. if you do not abuse your meds, you wouldn't be asking this. if you didn't have to take the adderall, you wouldn't have to take the unisom. upper during the day (or whenever a person feels they want more) and a downer at night. classic sign of an addiction begining. keep it up and adderall will no longer work for you. take my word for it. have a friend who now has to take three different meds. adderall, an enhancer to make the adderall work (because she abuses it) and a downer at night. i might also add she likes to drink caffiene and alcohol as well. she picks at her skin, can't shut up and is absolutely addicted. she can't keep a job, can't function emotionally. it's aweful. so watch it dear, dont ever take your meds when your not supposed to and do not do any other drugs (includes alcohol). good luck! oh, p.s. call your pharmacy and ask. probably safe to take, but you might need to double up..... see where this is going??????????????????????????? (ask your doctor about ibs-that could be your problem as well as other diseases like hepatitis c-they both cause brain fog.) Answered by Tabatha Horii 4 months ago.

I'm not asleep the whole time, just really really tired and it doesn't let my mind think of anything that might depress me so I guess I'm kind of walking comatose, but I really like the feeling? I try not to buy it but the pharmicist never asks questions, I wish they would just refuse to give it to me, I think it's something you should need a prescription for..:( Is this bad? Can you be addicted to it?? Answered by Vinnie Maione 4 months ago.

Okie dokie, now that the after school special is over, here is an actual to your question. Doxylamine was tested thoroughly in the United States and the FDA's position on this drug is that it has not been determined to be safe for a human to take doses greater than 25mg once a day, at bedtime. There are countries in other parts of the world that have allowed this drug to be formulated in a 50mg tablet to take once a day, at bedtime. When I take this drug I take two 25mg tablets at once, but that is coming from the guy who pops diphenhydramine tablets 12 at a time. That is not advice on what you should do, I am just sharing what I do. Answered by Nikia Jubilee 4 months ago.

Answered by Ila Flin 4 months ago.

So you are self-medicating to keep yourself from feeling depressed? That is a problem that is becoming more and more common today... My suggestion to you is to stop doing it. It will not lead to anything good, trust me. Go see a doctor and talk to them about what you are doing and get some advice. See a counselor. And to answer your question yes you can become addicted to it. Very addicted on many levels. First, you can become slightly addicted to the drug physically. You might get headaches or just feel generally weird if you stop taking it after a long time on it. Obviously it's not as bad as coming off the stronger drugs but it could be annoying. Secondly and much worse you can become mentally addicted to it. You will create a response system within your brain that will instantly cause you to want to take a drug whenever you are having a hard time. As this progresses it will take a smaller and smaller amount to push you to use just to feel better, until at some point you are using all the time just to deal with life in general. Eventually you will most likely progress to different drugs that work better (for a time, and with a terrible price of course) than Doxylamine. Once you begin this road it is very difficult to leave it... The most important thing to understand is you can't fix depression this way. You can only try and dampen the effects of it. But it will get stronger and eventually you will be a slave to a drug, and ironically, after a while you will become more depressed from the drug itself. Which will make your depression many times worse than it is already. Working will be difficult, and even if your not working right now, the longer you use the more of an addict you will become. And the harder it will be to stop once you start working. Bottom line don't go that road. You might try natural herbs. Try St. Johns Wort, B12, 5 htp, fish oil and take them every day for a few months. They can be just as powerful at fighting depression as prescriptions for some people without the side-effects. If that doesn't work try prescriptions if you feel that is the direction you want to go. Stop now, this is not a path you want to take, trust me. Answered by Dorinda Hulzing 4 months ago.
