does trazodone show up in urine screenings

does trazodone show up in urine screenings? ## No i take the same medision it never showed up in my test it is not a narcotic ## Trazodone (such as PLIVA [PLIVA 434; 100mg]) Is not subjected to the controlled substances act. There are no urine tests that screen for it. Trazodone Hydrochloride is most commonly used to treat depression; sedation; fibromyalgia; insomnia; and anxiety. It belongs to the drug class phenylpiperazine; antidepressants. There is no type of urine screen that looks for this, unless it is specifically being tested for. So a 5-panel, 9-panel, 10-panel, 12-panel, etc. will not be looking for this or its metabolites in your urine. But, as always, you should consult your physician about any concerns you have regarding medication. If you are obtaining this drug via stree...


my daughter has been taking melatonin along with 150mg.,of trazadone for 2.5 years she has autism and has had violent episodes and complains of aches and pains etc...are these 2 drugs combined becoming dangerous now with the new mood swings,and how to ween from 50mg of melatonin and 150mg.of trazadone ## I was told my U of M pych that long term use of Melatonin can cause moodiness. I have a son with autism and he is in Riperdal. Initially cured sleep problems but seems to not be working as effectively. U of M doctor said trezadone is safer than Clonidine but have not tried it yet. I was told to discontinue the Melatonin - not advisable for long term use. ## It would be best not to change her medication routine, without consulting her physician, since only they can get to the root of wha...

apotex vs pliva trazodone

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,...

trazodone for insomnia

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...

trazodone 100mg tab apo-new prescription trazodone teva 100mg much larger pill

does this new prescription contain other ingredients? My wife started taking new pills and now can't sleep ## Hi, Worried! Sorry that your wife is having trouble. What are the markings on the tablet? That's what would enable me to check this information for you. Sometimes the manufacturer listed by the pharmacy isn't accurate, or the listed one may be carrying the medication actually made by someone else. Learn more Trazodone details here. ## My doctor prescribed me a white round pill imprinted "PLIVA 434" with a line on the back. It was prescribed for insomnia at a dose of 100 mg. Is this right? ## Anything with Teva on it is usually very good. They switch my 1 mg Klonopin from the yellow tevas to these gray substitute generic Klonopin which is not as effective as t...

Differences between Trazodone and Tramadol

What are the differences between Trazodone and Tramadol? Are they the same thing? Do they have similar uses? ## No, they are not the same. Trazodone is an antidepressant that is also used to treat anxiety, and some severe forms of anxiety. (NDC code 0179-1118) The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. However, Tramadol is an opioid that is used to relieve pain. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and constipation. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. (NDC code 0093-0058) Is there anything else I can help with? ## Trazodone is an older anti-depressant. Considered an SARI. It is most widely prescribed nowadays as a non-benzo sleep aid. It works ...

Trazodone Prescription Information

What is the safest and quickest method to stop taking Trazodone? ## My daughter has been taking trazodone for 2.5 years at 150 mg. Can you just stop taking it or do you have to be weaned off? If you just stop will there be risks? ## Trazodone is an SARI antidepressant, so it works on brain chemicals, which means an abrupt cessation of it could result in some withdrawal symptoms and a rebound effect. The rebound effect is usually the biggest problem, because it may result in symptoms that are worse than what someone was taking it to treat. Learn more Trazodone details here. Thus, a slow gradual taper, under the supervision of a physician, is the best and safest way to stop these types of medications. Are there any other questions or comments? Is there anything I can help with? ## I need ...

Trazodone alternatives

I have been taking Trazodone for 5 years. Every year it seems I have to up my dosage. My Dr told me that 600mg is the max dose. I'm up to 500mg now and it still isn't working. I was wondering if there was another medication that's similar that I could take instead? ## Hello Aly, I can provide you with a list of medication that may be suitable substitutes but first I would need to know symptoms they are prescribing the trazadone to treat. Of course any drugs that I list are just similar to trazadone and you would need to discuss with your physician if switching to one of them would be a good choice for you. Trazadone is approved by the FDA as an anti-depressant but is also known for it's sedating purposes. Assuming that your physician has prescribed you this medication to...

generic trazodone

My extremely energetic dog takes Trazodone for calming. Recently the pharmacy refilled with a different manufacter pill which was slightly smaller and made by Zydus. The original RX was manufactured by TEVA. The effects were not the same....the dog was still bouncing off the walls after giving same dosage. I question the pharmacist who told me "it's just what they send us" and "it's the same drug". I disagree. Any info or comments? ## Hello Susan, Both of you are correct. The different manufacturers sell a drug that has the same quality and dosage of the same active ingredient as your pharmacist says, however, this does not mean that all of the inactive igredients are the same between the pills. The inactive ingredients in the medicine is just as important and im...

Trazadone and testing positive for MDMA

I live in a dry house. 3 days ago I got a random drug test. It came back positive for MDMA. Is this possible when I’m taking 300mg of Trazodone and 50mg of Phenergan? ## Trazodone's active and primary metabolite is meta-Chlorophenylpiperazine (mCPP), a drug that is sometimes used as an ingredient in formulations of X. The mCPP is probably what triggered the false positive.

insomnia medicine

## I've been taking this pill which i was told would help me sleep. They're Trazodone HCL 50mg tabs. It says on the bottle that it's for insomnia. Is this a sleeping pill and what does it do?

Side Effects of Trazodone

I have been taking 200mg of Trazodone since February and although I noticed an immediate improvement in my mood I think I'm struggling now with side effects although my doctor said they should have worn off by now. I find that I'm constantly shaky inside, feel cold most of the time, frequently feel ill, very irritable and general feeling of not coping. Any thoughts welcome. ## Hello, Fiona! How are you? Your doctor is correct, they should have worn off by now, it usually only takes about 4 to 5 weeks.
