Trazodone Overview

Trazodone, sold under the brand name Oleptro among 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.[7] 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)).[8] Contents 1 Me...

Trazodone and Vision Problems
8 Replies RSS
I currently am using Trazodone HCL 150Mg for insomnia. I usually cut the dosage in half or in thirds and notice my eyes and vision seem to be affected. It is as if my eyes are really tired, blink a lot, and definitely irritated. I take no other meds except 25Mg of Metoprolol ER to slow a rapid heartbeat. I have been taking Metoprolol for many months with no side effects. I previously had been using 50MG of Trazodone and it was quite ineffective. My doctor increased the dosage to help me sleep. I do not notice anyone complaining of eye problems. The Mfr. of Trazodone is TEVA Pharm. ## Hello, Gloria! How are you? The FDA does list blurry vision among the possible side effects of Trazodone, but they don't specify how or why it causes it, so yes, your symptoms could possibly be due to t...

trazodone for insomnia
23 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...

trazodone what does it look like

100 mg pill markings of trazadone ## Since Trazodone is a generic for the antidepressant Desyrel, there are many on the market and each tablet made by a different company will have different markings. Some imprints include: SL 434 Barr 555 490 93 638 5599 DAN DAN APO T100 441 R MP 114 MX 72 And this is by no means a comprehensive list of all of them. If the pill you have is not on this list, please post back with the imprint and I can look it up for you! Do any of these match yours? ## I received a new Rx of Trazodone from a 'by mail' pharmacy that looks like this: white, round, 100mg tablet with a stylized V and the number 19 on each half of the scored tablet. if tablet turned upside down, the numbers are 61 rather than 19. Thanks for your time and trouble. ## Hi Kathleen, The ...

I have what I thought was trazodone 100mg but it doesn't have any letters on it. It is white with 100 on one side and scored in quarters on the other. Any help? ## Yes I have exactly the same pill. It seemed to have worked for insomnia but feel a bit knocked out & depressed. I will take less tonight. From what I've read of side effects it seems to be the real deal but who knows?

## 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...

Round White Pill C 50 N / Pill imprinted one side line across center Other side imprinted letters pliva with #'s 433. Does anyone know what these ar
13 Replies RSS
I was given a RX for a mild sleeping pill Trazodone 50 MG. I have tried taking one as prescribed occassionally and it keeps me up all night. Then the next day I feel fatigued and have a headache. They are white round pills with a line down the center on one side and tthe other side has letters PLIVA AND THE #433 ON THE SIDE. Couldn't find it in the PDR. ## The tablet marked PLIVA 433 does contain 50mgs of Trazodone, however, it is not actually a sleeping pill. Trazodone is an SARI antidepressant, which can cause some drowsiness as a side effect, but it will not actually work like regular sleeping pills. That also explains your symptoms of the headache and fatigue, because those are normal side effects of this class of medications. Learn more: Did your doctor say that this was a slee...

2 Replies RSS
i found a half of a pill it is white and you can break it into three triangles i can see 441 on one side triangle and on the other side of the triangle i see 50 ## White triangle pill with 441 and 50 other side.... ## This tablet is manufactured by Pliva Inc. and they list it as containing 150mgs of Trazodone, which is an antidepressant that is also used to treat insomnia. It is designed so each triangle contains 50mgs of the active ingredient. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight gain. Are there any other questions?

Reducing trazodone
2 Replies RSS
Following an ECG, my psychiatrist has reduced my trazodone ( which I have been taking for many years for depression and anxiety ) I have gone from 300mg/day to 250mg/day, then after a week from 250mg/day to 200mg/day. That is as much as I have to reduce it. I am one week in and my mood has dropped low and my anxiety and binge eating is worse. Is this possible? ## Yes, according to NIH reports, it is normal to experience some withdrawal effects, they could also include nausea, fever, chills, and rebound depression. However, things should improve, after a week, or so, once your body adjusts to the new dosage. How are you doing now? Has there been any change? ## No, no change as yet, I am still feeling overwhelmed and anxious.
