It could be that she needs to speak to her doctor about adjusting her dosage, or maybe trying a different medication entirely. ...

some risks of trazadone

Is anyone else worried about the possible side effects of tardives dyskinesia or akathesia or dystonia? Does anyone know how rare it is to get these on a lower dose of 50 mg. for sleep? Please share if you have encouraging info on this. I have anxiety & I worry every time I have any facial twitches or unusal sensations, likely caused by my anxiety. Otherwise, it does help for sleep. :~) I've taken it for 3 years for insomnia. ## They are very rare side effects, anyway, which means they would be even less likely to occur at the lower doses. I'm not going to try to tell you there isn't any risk, but if you've already been taking it for years, that means your risk of developing them is even lower. Learn more Trazodone details here. Have you discussed your concerns with ... ...

trazadone - what is a low dose?

gone off serequel and they put me on trazadone. (50mg). I does nothing and yet they say 2 will give hallucinations. what can I do. I cannot sleep w/ 1 of the trazadone. ## That's odd, it can be given in doses much higher than that, it's approved to be used for some conditions in up to 400mgs a day. The FDA classifies Trazodone as a tetracyclic antidepressant that is also commonly used to treat insomnia. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, weight changes, mood swings and dry mouth. However, they may be being cautious, since you've just recently gone off the Seroquel, you may need to give it more time, before the dosage can be raised. Your problems sleeping could also be aggravated by coming off of it. Are you on any other medications? ...

weaning trazadone and ativan

Hi all - new to this forum. I started taking Trazodone and Ativan after back injury and subsequent depression and insomnia. Now months later, I am weaning off the Ativan (down from 2.5 to .5 and running!). Doing it slowly and it's going well. But I am experiencing side effects from the Traz (blurred vision, headaches, etc.) and beginning to bring my dose down as well (was at 100 mg, now down by 12.5!). Any advice/concerns about doing both at same time? ## Hello, Luria! How are you doing? How slowly are you doing it? If you're tapering both, at the same time, then it's hard to say which may be causing these symptoms, it might even be due to both of them, since both are psychoactive and have been known to cause such symptoms upon withdrawal. You need to be extremely careful wi... ...

trazadone natural replacement

Does anyone know anything I can take OTC that works in the way trazadone 50 mg does? Ambien never helped and all the other Rx for sleep....I do also know this is an antidepressant. I just kicked methadone after some years so my Rx ran out early. Haven't been sleeping at all...thanks ?? ## Unfortunately, no there isn't an OTC medication that will work like it does, that's why they are OTC and these others require prescriptions. The FDA warns that most of these carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, mood changes, and sedation. There are some medications available OTC to help with insomnia, have you tried any of them? Are you on any other medications? ## Verwon- Thanks for your reply melatonin does not work for m... ...

Trazadone suddenly not working

My doctor prescribed 50 mg of Trazadone to help me sleep. I have horrible insomnia, had it for years. I started taking it like a month ago. At first it worked wonderfully, was able to fall asleep and while I still woke many times was able to get right back to sleep. Felt like a new person! Now suddenly it's stopped working! I'm wide awake every night till about 4 am, then up at 6 for the day. This sucks! I should add I also take Paxil during the day for anxiety. What should I do? Is this normal? I was all set to take this pill forever, didn't think it would quit working so quickly. Thanks for any input/advice! ## Hello, Beth! How are you? Has anything else change regarding your sleep habits? Anything in your diet? It could be that it you just need a higher dosage. Have you c... ...

Dilaudid 4 Mg and 100mg of trazadone

I am taking 4 mg of dilaudid and 100 mg of trazadone and I can't sleep. I can't keep my eyes open but just toss and turn ## I had been taking Trazadone for years and I really felt it helped me get to sleep but did not work as well keeping me asleep. ## Michelle, are you sure that you aren't sleeping, or is it possible that you are and are just having very vivid dreams that you aren't? That, coupled with extreme restlessness would make you exhausted and could make you think you aren't sleeping at all. Learn more Trazodone details here. Learn more Dilaudid details here. Otherwise, if you really aren't sleeping, then you should speak to your doctor about the problem. Are there any other questions or comments? ...
