Just prescribed Trazodone and am concerned about side effects, 50mg 2x a day, I'm thinking of starting with 25mg. What's your experience with the medicine?

      I’ve been taking Trazodone for sleep since I stopped drinking in 2010. Works like a charm! I used to drink to sleep…

      I've been taking it for 10 years. Never had any side affects.

      I mean, other than the *intensed* effect of drowsiness

      I've had no noticable side affects for it and I've been taking 50mg before bed for 2 years as a sleep aid. One of the few meds in my list that hasn't had any noticeable side affects, really

      I've been on Trazadon for at least 10 years and I take 200mg a night for insomnia. When u take it don't be doing anything like operating a car or signing documents. Cause while it's in affect u can do things u don't realize ur doing.

      i take 50 or 100 mg for sleep. it isn’t super strong like a narcotic but it helps a little bit.

      i just started it for my sleeping problems associated with ADHD and the first time I took it at night I fell asleep great. But, I woke up with the worse migraine ever! I was throwing up and could not open my eyes without feel a pulsing pain in my forehead. I haven’t tried to take it since because I am afraid of it. But, has anyone else experienced this???

      trazodone has never worked for me for some reason… but again, everyone is different! i got off that med a few months ago because it gave me very bad headaches and made my cramps so much worse. but i am also very sensitive to meds so it may have just been me. 😅

      I take it for insomnia. It is rarely used to treat depression anymore. They are using it for insomnia. I take 300 mgs at bedtime. It works well.

      I would only take it at bedtime. I've taken 100 mg at bedtime since 2012. Sometimes I supplement with melatonin.

      I tried it, but it only makes me loopy and then wears off after a couple of hours. I wish it had worked as my sleep is horrible. (Of course, some of the lack of sleep could be my cat - he likes to "sing" at night.)

      I used to take it for sleep and it was wonderful.

      I love it! I take a 100 mg at night and it keeps me asleep. I can’t fall asleep, so I take 5 mg Ambien to put me to sleep. Works really good. I had crazy dreams at first with Trazodone, but they don’t last very long.

      I take mine once at night for sleep. It knocks me out within about an hour of taking it. I'm only on 30mg right now though.
