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...

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,...

i am taking the medican clarithromy and trazodone can i take both at the same time

i need to know if taking the medican trazondone and clarithromyc at one time is this harmfull? ## IT isn't recommended that they be taken at the same time, the Clarithromycin can increase the plasma concentrations of the Trazodone and this could result in worsening of the side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness and dizziness. They should be taken several hours apart, to prevent this. Are there any comments or questions? ## Can I take eltroxin and razo 20 both empty stomach in morning

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...

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? 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 ni...
