Trazodone Overview

Trazodone (sold under the brand name Oleptro, among many others)[1] is an antidepressant of the serotonin antagonist and reuptake inhibitor (SARI) class. It is a phenylpiperazine compound. Trazodone also has anti-anxiety (anxiolytic) and sleep-inducing (hypnotic) effects.[5] Its side-effect profile and potential toxicity are considerably different from those of the original antidepressants (i.e., the monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) and tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs)).[6] Contents ...

trazodone and methadon mix well?or will it kill me ## Im on methadone and Trazadone and have been passing out in seconds of taking the trazadone waking up at table, computer, etc with bruises on face is it cause of the mixture? ## First... take the medications sitting on the bed, ready for sleep. Second, you don't mention what strengths you are taking of each. 20 mg of Methadone and 50mg of Trazodone should not hurt you... if you sleep well then great... if you only sleep for a couple of hours then you should consult your Dr. ## For anyone experiencing an issue like this, it is very important that you consult your doctor immediately, regardless of the dose. Both of these medications may cause depression of the central nervous system, that could cause severely lowered blood pressure ...

## I been taking this pill which i was told it would help me sleep. There Trazodone HCL 50mg Tab. It says on the bottle for Insomnia. Is this a sleeping pill and what does it do. I sleep 10-12 hours and i only take 1/2 the tablet. ## The thing about trazadone is it is actually an antidepressant,but only in high doses built up over a period of time(this level must be maintaind to be theraputic).But one of the side effects is extreme drowsiness,but if taken regularly your tolerencn will build up.Mine builds up after a period of time and I have to stop taking it for 6 months in order for it to b effective for me.But overall it does its job for sleep,I have been taking it for 5 years ## Just like the trance song, I can't get no sleep. That is how I feel every night when I get home from ...

apotex vs pliva trazodone
92 Replies RSS
My pharmacy just switched manufacturers of my prescription trazodone 50mg. It used to be made by apotex now it is pliva and I am finding that the new pills are having little to no effect and I am starting to suffer discontinuation syndrome. I talked to my pharmacist and doctor and neither one could tell me what was causing this. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who could shed some light on the subject. ## Yes, I can. Under Federal Law, by way of the Hatch Watchman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from their name brand counterparts by as much as plus or minus 20% in the active ingredient. Many people are not aware of this, including doctors, but the FDA considers this to be a very minor difference that does not affect the therapeutic dosing of medications. So,...

## just want to know what it is ## a friend gave me some and i want to know what they do and if they have codiene in them. ## This is Trazodone 50mg made by Pliva/Sidmak Labs. It is an antidepressant with mild sedative properties, sometimes prescribed as a sleeping pill. ## THE PILL YOU GUYS ARE QUESTIONING IS CALLED TRAZADONE, THE SPELLING COULD BE WRONG BUT ITS A SLEEPING PILL THATS ALL. ## This is 50mgs Trazadone, a generic for Desyrel. However, IT IS NOT A SLEEPING PILL. It is actually an antidepressant that has drowsiness as a side effect. ## To verwon: I am on Trazadone. It is prescribed to me as a sleeping pill. It has more than one use. ## Trazadone is actually a mild synthetic opioid, similiar to methadone, but lesser in potency. It is used to treat mild to moderate pain, as we...

Trazodone Usage - Concerned Parent
1 Reply RSS
What would be the purpose of taking trazodone for fun? I found a bar on the floor of my child's room... Help. ## There really aren't many that I can think of, it is an antidepressant that is used to treat depression, anxiety, and insomnia, according to FDA records. If it is making someone feel dizzy and drowsy, they may think they are getting high, but it really won't do much more than that. Are you sure it belonged to your child? Have they had a friend over recently that it could have belonged to? Or maybe another relative?

Properties of Trazodone
1 Reply RSS
Is Trazodone addictive? Is it an opioid? I just increased my medication of Trazodone from 50 to 100 mg to help me sleep at night! ## No, it is an antidepressant that is most commonly used to treat anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. How are you doing on the higher dose? Are you taking any other medications?

What is the difference between Trazodone100 MG Tablet APO and Trazodone 100 MG Tablet PLI ? ## Only the manufacturer, the one listed as APO is made by Apotex Pharmaceuticals and the one listed as PLI is made by Pliva Pharmaceuticals.

trazadone for insomnia
21 Replies RSS
I have read the leaflet that came w/ my meds. Its listed as an antidepressant but was prescribed to me for insomnia. Two questions now. 1. Do I have to take it every night? 2. How worried should I be about the side effects? Frankly, I've put off taking it because I've never been diagnosed w/ depression, just insomnia & migraine. Any concise info you can provide would be great! Just speak to me like a person, not a doctor. Thanks! ## Trazadone. First off Trazadone is a cocaine withdrawal pill. And I guess it is prescribed for insomnia as well. My doctor gave it to me to help me sleep. It most definitely put me to sleep. But the bad, bad, bad thing about this medication is it stops your nose up to point where its impossible to breath. The first time I took it I knew exactly ho...
