Anyone here taking Trazodone? I've been taking it for over 15 years for sleep, 300 mg every night.

I've been having intermittent vertigo issues for the last couple of years, with the episodes becoming more frequent. ENT had a number of ear tests scheduled for tomorrow. (ABR, ECochG, and VNG).

Now he's saying the Trazodone will interfere with the testing, and I have to come off of it for 48 hours. Which means no sleep for at least 2 days, which at minimum will ruin me for the next week, and worst case will kick off a Lupus flare.

So, if anyone is taking Trazodone for sleep -- any signs of vertigo? Willing to discuss this situation with me? Frustrated here!

Hi Lynnwood,

Sorry to hear you have to come off of your Trazodone to have the test done. Sorry as well that you’re still having issues with vertigo, it’s a horrible feeling for sure. I took trazodone for many years and did not have any vertigo type issues myself. Hopefully that’s not the problem, but I sure hope they get this figured out for you quickly.
