I took trazadone both times I was in the neuropsych unit. They give it to EVERYONE. I'm not kidding. All of us up there were on it in one dose or another. I was on 50 mg and it did nothing for me. I took it with all the other antidepressants I take and it had no effect on me. I couldn't sleep, couldn't get my thoughts to shut off and it made my migraines worse. In short, I hated it. The doctor took me off of it and put me on seroquel instead. I don't know if these drugs are related but that's the route my doc took and the seroquel is wonderful. I sleep better than I have in a long time now that they are at therapeutic levels. I had a hard time for a few weeks. I would never go back on the trazadone. I'm glad it works for some people like it's supposed to. Everyone reacts differently to things though.
