How much....: ...Trazodone were you told to take? You don't say, but most people that are prescribed trazodone these days are given it for sleep and often don't need more than 50mg. It is a very sedating drug. It may take 2 hours for you to really feel the effect so you should take it on the early side. If 50mg isn't quite enough, you may want to wait until tomorrow to take it again and try 75 ( 1 and 1/2 tab).
