I took my Trazodone almost 3 hours ago and it still hasn't kicked in. Every once in a while, I will have nights like this. They are no fun. I have a super busy morning with my son's First Steps evaluation, and it is early. I need to get some sleep. I took my meds and my hubby and I turned on a movie. Normally I fall asleep by the middle of it. It got over an hour ago. So, for an hour, I have been lying down, desperately trying to sleep. I even moved to the living room because my hubby's snores were getting to me, which it rarely does. *sighs* This is mainly just a late night rant about the fact that I can't sleep and I really need to.

Do you ever try soaking in the bathtub filled with really warm water?  I do this and it helps.  Sorry you are having sleep problems.  When I went to an arthritis seminar they suggested deep breathing if you had trouble sleeping.    Hand on stomach, then inhale, kind of inflating stomach, and and then exhale slowly.  It does help.

Sometimes benadryl will help me. I take trazodone also but probably in higher doses than you do.

Donna, how much trazodone do you take? I take 150mg a night. The night before last it worked great. It kicked in fast and I slept pretty good. But last night it just did not want to work. I did finally get a little bit of sleep, but it doesn't feel like it. My son woke me up at 5:30, and I have been up ever since. I hope I sleep better tonight. I feel like crap this morning from lack of restful sleep, and I have a pretty busy day today. I will probably take a nap when my son does today.
