I was on the phone to my psych the other day (she phoned me on holiday, how nice of her). I was in a bar at the time, so wasn't paying much  attention, but last night I got thinking about what she said.
 
She was asking how my Trazodone was going and all that, as I haven't spoke to her since I started it 2 weeks ago.
Then she asked what time I was taking it. I said just before I went to sleep like I used to with my Remeron and Lofepramine. She asked what time that would be. But to be honest for the last month my sleep times have been a bit off, as I had easter holidays, then college week, then holiday. So I've been going to bed from anywhere between 6pm and 2am.
 
I'm wondering now why she kept quizzing for a definate time. Should I be taking it at a specific time? It's not like some of my other meds where you need a certain amount of hours between doses is it?
 
I'm not going to see her for another 2 weeks, and she's a nightmare to get hold of by phone. Also I'm trying to avoid reading the leaflet still. Paul has told me it doesn't say anything about it in the leaflet. But now I'm confused then why my psychiatrist would be quizzing me.
 
I thought maybe it was connected to the headaches I was getting in a morning, but I've been getting them from day one of starting the med, and they're starting to ease off now, so I'm only needing a coffee in a morning to make my head feel right, not painkillers too.
 

Any ideas anyone? confused

Hey Gems,

I take my Trazodone right before I go to bed for the night.  Does not matter what time that maybe for me.  Could be 10:00 PM or Midnight..........

I just take it and have never really dwelled on it as it does help me sleep however if I have to get up earlier it does not affect my ability to function.

Hope that helps you a bit.

Love
Kitt

Thankyou sweetie.

That's put my mind at rest now. I hate thinking I'm doing something wrong, and having no way to check.

I know, I get paranoid so easily, I should just try and chill. I guess I'm just so used to things going wrong!

You're a star Kitt, thanks again

Hugs
